Celebrate Dia De Los Muertos and Halloween at the Farmers’ Market
Tuesday | October 31, 2017 | 2:00 pm — 6:00 pm
Berkeley Farmers’ Market, Tuesday | Adeline and Alcatraz, Berkeley, CA
It’s transition time at the farmers’ markets. Stone fruit and salads of summer are giving way to soup and citrus season. It is also the season of Dia de los Muertos and Halloween, a time that celebrates the transitions of life to death and the relationship between. It is said that at this time the worlds of the living and the worlds of the dead are in closest proximity.
Bring your family and something for the altar, lovingly built by La Oaxaqueña’s Rosa Olivia.
Plan to stay for the whole day and enjoy:
• Face painting
• Live mariachi band
• Spooky Storytime with Berkeley Public Library
• Street decorating
• Costume contest — wear your costume and you might win a basket of farmers’ market goodies!
