And The Winner is…

That’s alota squash! 65 pounds to be exact.

And the winner of the Great Pumpkin Give Away is # 777368. Come claim your prize! Bring your winning ticket to the front desk here at The Market in Midway.

Considered by many to be a veggie, the pumpkin is the fruit of the Cucurbita, Latin for gourd. The Cucurbitaceae family also includes cucumber and watermelon. I bet that is more Latin than you cared to learn today.

Tomorrow is National Pumpkin Day. I wonder what The Great Pumpkin will become, pie, soup or spiced latte or maybe all the above. Don’t forget to bake the seeds!

There is still time to take advantage of all the Spooky Deals in the Shops of The Market in Midway.

Halloween is also Books For Treats Day. Stop by Iron Eagle Leather Crafts & More. There is a library there. For $8, they will give you a bag to fill with Paper Back Books. What better way to Treat your brain.

Fall Sales

Why not make it a family affair? Don your Halloween best and head to The Market in Midway. While you are checking out all the Spooky deals, the kiddies can Trick or Treat with our Vendors.

Let’s Go Nuts!

Saturday is National Nut Day and it’s the time to celebrate all things Nuts!


This national day has only been around since 2015, but mankind’s love of all things nuts is as old as time. An archeological dig in Israel revealed evidence that nuts were a major part of our diet 780,000 years ago. Even early Native Americans ate nuts. They made flour, nut butters and used the shells to fuel fires.

Did you know that the Macadamia nut came from Australia…WHAAAAT?!?
Yep, Macadamias were originally grown in Queensland, Australia and only arrived in Hawaii during the late 1800’s. Just so you know, the peanut is not really a nut but a member of the pea family!?!

Speaking of nuts…The Candy Shoppe has $1 off a purchase of $10 or more. Stop in, pick up some snacks while you shop The Market this weekend.

What’s Up With That Pie?

Sunday is both National Boston Cream Pie Day and Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day. While I don’t recommend you act upon the latter, I do hope it brought you a giggle or a grin.

In 1856, French Chef Sanzian created the delectable dessert for the opening of the Parker House Hotel in downtown Boston, which is now known as the Omni Parker House. As a remake of the early American ‘Pudding-cake-pie’, two layers of butter sponge cake, were filled with a thick custard or cream, and are topped with a chocolate glaze.

Is it a cake or is it a pie? I don’t know. I’ll let you decide for yourself. I do know that Jack’s Dawghouse promised us some creamy, yummy desserts this Sunday! Swing by the Jack’s food truck outside and give it a try.
