Damp, cool weather did little to keep people from showing up at Niagara Falls Farmers Market in droves on Saturday for an event billed as Harvest Hoopla.
There were still plenty of locally grown apples available, but also farmer Peter Voogt's butternut squashes and brownies, and pumpkin pie from Moodie's Bakery, that people snapped up quickly at the market on Sylvia Place behind Niagara Falls History Museum.
There were also long lines of pumpkins set up. All proceeds from the purchase of pumpkins, donated by DeVries Fruit Farm, were going to Niagara Nutrition Partners, a regional program that serves breakfasts, lunches and snacks in elementary and high schools. The program is in 180 Niagara schools and serves 17,000 meals a day.
