The Jamaica Farmers Market festival marks the end of the summer growing season — and the fresh produce stands on 160th Street two days a week during the warm months.
The highlight of the Harvest Festival is the pie-baking contest, which Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndeman selflessly volunteered to judge this year.
A sight that hasn’t been seen in Queens for many years — a drive-in movie — for just one night, sadly. The Parks Department set up the days-past theater in the parking lot of Crocheron Park in Bayside.
Because of the unseasonable weather, several of the drive-in movie goers elect to sit outside their cars to watch a nighttime showing of the popular Halloween film “Hocus Pocus.”
Yelp, the ubiquitous, on-line review site, sponsors a sprawling food-and-drink fund-raiser called Autumn’s Up at the Queens Musuem.
Spread-mmms — a handmade olive tapenade — is given out free. The company came to the Queens Yelp event looking for its first store in the borough.

Check out some of the action in Queens from last weekend.

We had three photographers out shooting some photos from around the borough, including the Jamaica Farmers Market Harvest Festival, a drive-in move showing of “Hocus Pocus” in Bayside’s Crocheron Park, and the Autumn’s Up fund-raiser at the Queens Museum.
