This month, the Carroll Garden Greenmarket is celebrating Fall with two fun events. First up is the chance to win a prize by guessing the weight of a giant pumpkin. Then, the following week, meet local chef Hetty McKinnon of Arthur Street Kitchen and watch her cooking demo. She is a dear friend of mine, so please stop by to say hi to her.
