Contributed • Oct 17, 2019 at 9:16 AM

The Kingsport Farmers Market's Fall Festival is back for 2019. Visit the market on Oct. 19 from 8 a.m. to noon for pumpkins, sweet fall treats, festive home decor, mums for your front porch and so much more.

Along with your favorite vendors, the Kingsport Farmers Market will celebrate the fall harvest with live music, kids’ activities and plenty of fun.

Here are the day’s activities:

- Bring the kids! Join in mini pumpkin painting while supplies last, and Perfectly Unhinged is sponsoring other kids' activities.

- Bortz Graphix Plus is back this year with expert pumpkin carving demonstrations, plus completed pumpkins on display.

- Want to learn how to make apple butter? Come watch Sunset Rotary's demonstration and buy the finished product.

- Food City will be on-site with caramel apple slices. Come get yours while supplies last, or visit the smoker.

As part of the festival, the market is also hosting a Pumpkin Carving Contest. Enter to win prizes in three categories—Best Carved, Best Decorated and Biggest Pumpkin—in adult or 12 & under categories. Pumpkin check-in begins at 8 a.m., judging starts at 11 a.m., and entrants must pick up their pumpkins by noon.
