Fall festival at country store: The owners of the Patterson’s Mill Country Store will hold a fall festival on Saturday with music, arts and crafts vendors and food for sale.

Foster’s on the Fly, the mobile food truck operated by the owner of the Foster’s Market gourmet food market and café in Durham, will be on-site from 2 to 5 p.m.

In addition, Alfred’s Farm will sell eggs, produce, plants and baked goods such as blueberry apple pie, granola, cookies and brownies.

The vendors on-site will include painters, weavers, sculptors and makers of gifts, puzzles, decorations, hair accessories, wreathes, Christmas stockings, quilts, jewelry, candles and glass art.

The N.C. Songwriters’ Co-op will organize music.

Patterson’s Mill is a country store on Farrington Road near the Interstate 40 and N.C. 54 interchange. It sells North Carolina collectibles, candy jams and jellies, antiques and secondhand books.

“We are holding the festival because this is a great place to have events, and the weather looks really good for this weekend,” said Anna Booker, an operator of the business. “It’s just a fun outdoor event for people to come check out some locally made wares, and just have a good time.”

There is no charge to attend the festival, which will be on the lawn in front of and beside the store. The store is at 5109 Farrington Road in Chapel Hill. For information, call 919-493-8149.
