The Shoppes at Lafayette has a history of having a Garlic Weekend. The Garlic Weekend is an extension of the Sunday Farmer’s Market. The garlic “harvest” is typically Mid-October. We celebrate this garlic harvest by inviting the garlic farmers in the Skylands region and beyond to participate in a weekend long harvest celebration. This year we will have about 10 farmers/vendors that work specifically with garlic, our three normal farmers and more food and craft vendors. This weekend really does celebrate the harvest.
