WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Downtown West Orange Alliance sponsored a pumpkin painting event on Oct. 23. Local businesses like Doctor's Express and 8 to 8 Barbershop were on hand to help little ones paint pumpkins and enjoy the sunny Fall afternoon.

The weekly Farmers Market located at Harrison and Mississippi Avenues near Main Street, tranformed into a Pumpkin Patch replete with decorative corn, squashes, and the perfect size pumpkins for painting.

The Farmers Market will be held one more time on Oct. 31 from noon to 6:00 pm before closing. Take advantage of the fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, jewelry, clothing, and natural products available.
