This Saturday, Oct. 29, will be the last day of the season for the summer-Saturdays Old Colorado City Farmers Market.
       The market will return for its 25th year in June on the second Saturday after Territory Days, according to honey producer Frank Schmidt, president of the non-profit organization that sponsors the outdoor market on 24th Street next to Bancroft Park.
       Following their usual market time frame, Schmidt and about 25 other growers and/or merchants will set up for shop this Saturday at about 7 a.m., and start closing around 1 p.m.
       Also shutting down for the season will be the craft booths that have been setting up at the same time on Saturdays outside the nearby Old Colorado City History Center, 1 S. 24th St., according to Jo Cervone of the Old Colorado City Historical Society.
       2 Art Walk exhibits
