Lovers of the fall season, or at least the fall season aesthetic, came out en masse on Sept. 25 to participate in the first of four Harvest Markets to be held in Grove City this year. Hosted annually by the Grove City Community Club, the market boasts more than 20 vendors selling homemade crafts, seasonal baked goods, and, of course, pumpkins, gourds, and mums. Here, 2-year-old Jack Roberts proudly displays two of the mini pumpkins he personally picked out to take back to his home in Grove City. Residents who want their own will have the opportunity to find one of their liking when the market returns on Oct. 2, Oct. 9 and Oct. 16 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 3444 Park St. in the Town Center.

Knox Sanders, 3, is all smiles after his grandmother purchased this spooky bat yard display. The wooden ornament was created by Orient resident Eddie Kistler.
Dan Lett, of Richwood, enthusiastically showcases the colorful Indian corn for sale. He said while it can be eaten or popped, most people like to use them for home adornments.
Line dancers with the Grove City Church of the Nazarene provided the entertainment at the Sept. 25 Harvest Market. There will be a pumpkin giveaway on Oct. 2, children’s crafts on Oct. 9 and Trick or Treating on Oct. 16.
Grove City Community Club member Judy Fleming gives the simmering bean soup a good stir as the hungry crowd awaits. The club will also be selling chicken noodle soup on Oct. 2 and vegetable soup on Oct. 9. The Grove City Community Club has been sponsoring the Harvest Market for 18 years. President LaRae Helsel said the proceeds they make through sales go directly back into the community.
