Fall is in the air and Carteret Street United Methodist Church’s annual Fall Bazaar will be held Saturday, October 10th, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church, located at 408 Carteret Street in Beaufort. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees will be able to enjoy purchasing baked goods, frozen foods and other edible delicacies, participate in a silent auction, prepare for fall planting with sod and bedding plants from the Garden Shop, or find treasure in the good “junque”, tools, crafts, toys and games booths.
As with any good bazaar, concessions will be sold throughout the day. The Pumpkin Patch will also be open, and there will be kids’ games for a fun event for the entire family. All proceeds benefit church missions and programs.
Also, the famous Pumpkin Patch is open daily. The Pumpkin Patch, sponsored by the Carteret Street Youth, is open to the public and offers pumpkins of all shapes and sizes for sale. School trips are also available. All proceeds raised benefit Carteret Street’s youth ministries.
The pumpkins are grown in New Mexico by Navajo Indians and are shipped directly to Carteret Street as a gesture of faith. Carteret Street, in turn, sells the pumpkins, reports the sales and receives a portion of the overall sales.
