Bring on the pumpkin spice: it’s Fall in Missouri! This year looks a little different with many of our beloved fall festivals cancelled. However, there are still plenty of spook-tacular things to see and do before cold weather sets in. Here are just a few places we suggest visiting this fall.

 

It just wouldn’t feel like fall without a trip to the corn maze. The corn maze at Shryocks Callaway Farms opened September 18 and is a favorite for visitors of all ages. Layout and theme of the maze changes yearly and the theme for 2020 is Champs. Enjoy S’Mores by one of the campfire areas that comes complete with roasting sticks and a picnic table. Reservations are required and can be made during regular corn maze hours. Pumpkins will be for sale in late September.

Midway Golf & Games has added a corn maze to their fall 2020 season. They have partnered with Special Olympics Missouri and will be donating a portion of the profits to support programs for more than 16,000 athletes. In addition to the corn maze, they will have a pumpkin patch, mums, hayrides and firepits. Take advantage of one of their fall combo cards and enjoy a round of mini golf, a go kart ride or some time in the batting cage along with your trip through the corn maze.

Heads up! 🚘 CFM Curbside Pickup Program time changes to 8:30 am-10 am, starting this Saturday, June 6! As we have slowly started allowing more people into the market, and the community starts to open, we have seen a large decrease in the number of curbside pickups. We, however, understand that many at-risk customers rely on the Curbside Pickup Program to purchase local food, and will continue to offer the program, for now, with limited hours. The longevity of the program is dependent on how many customers are using the program, as it’s a huge workload for CFM staff and vendors. Therefore, it will eventually be phased out if the total number of pickups continue to drop, which we believe it will. We’ll do our best to keep you posted about any further changes! Feel free to share your thoughts with us. 💚 #curbsidepickup #farmersmarketsareessential #werehereforyou #farmersmarket #columbiafarmersmarket
