It’s time for a favorite annual event at the Farmers’ Market, our cross-cultural Halloween/Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos) Celebration. This coming Tuesday, the Farmers’ Market will be in full color, with live Aztec dance, live Caribbean music by Asheba, free all-ages costume making with East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, face painting, a Day of the Dead Altar, and more. Bring an offering to add to the altar created by the Bay Area Hispano Institute for Advancement (BAHIA), to honor life, farmers’ labor, and those that have sacrificed their health and lives for our well being and for food justice.
