Fall settled in last month, and the Issaquah Farmers Market is poised to pack up for the season Saturday.

The market runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pickering Farm, 1730 10th Ave. N.W.

For the last market Saturday of the year, the farmers market is hosting Tacoma Glassblowing Studio. Glassblowers plan to transform Pickering Barn into a pumpkin patch of blown-glass gourds. The patch is expected to feature more than 2,000 glass pumpkins, ranging from small to jumbo.

The patch is set up to resemble a natural pumpkin patch, and includes hay bales, scarecrows and other autumnal decorations.

In addition to the glass pumpkin patch, the market features a cooking demonstration from Lisa Dupar Catering from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Gardeners can stop by the Seattle Tilth Hotline Booth for answers to gardening questions. Seattle Tilth also has a garden work party planned in the community garden behind the barn.
