Garlic Festival 2023

You are currently viewing Garlic Festival 2023

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.

Saturday, October 14:  10:00am - 5:00pm
