In three years, the Lexington Farmers Market annual FEASTival is fast becoming a local holiday tradition.
Hurricane Sandy might have washed out the Lexington Farmers Market’s last regularly scheduled market day of the year, but that wicked superstorm can’t touch this Tuesday’s Thanksgiving FEASTival.

If it looks like Christmas but sells like Thanksgiving, it must be the Lexington Farmers Market's second annual FEASTival at Seasons Four.
The second annual Thanksgiving FEASTival, held at Seasons Four from noon to 4 p.m. yesterday was a success, and a great way to get the holiday turkey, a few veggies and herbs to complete the holiday meal. The kiosks, tables and tents were parked in and outside Seasons Four, which allowed visitors to think beyond tomorrow's turkey and into next month's festivities. Mid-afternoon, dozens of high school singers to visitors as they attempt to raise money for a trip to Europe in April 2012. There were other events and a lot to keep everyone busy and buying.
