The summer has come to an end and so will your favorite West Side farmers markets.

At the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Bidwell Parkway, the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers’ Market will be open until Nov. 29.  Lisa Brocato, a farmer at Rooted Locally and a market board member, said while the majority of vendors will be closed, some will be there until Thanksgiving weekend.

The West Side Tilth Farm, 246 Normal Ave., will run until Oct. 29. Hours on Saturdays from 10 a.m.- 3 p.m.

 Providence Farm Collective,  finishing its market’s first year, will be open Saturdays from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. until Oct. 15. It is located at 130 Grant St.
