Farmers, vendors preparing for Fall
This will be the last weekend of Summer, as Fall starts on Monday.
While we hit record high temperatures this week in the Tennessee Valley, it didn't slow down some vendors from setting up for the Fall season.
If you drive down Signal Mountain Road, you can't miss Weaver Tree Farms.
John Weaver, president of Weaver Farms Inc., said they have anywhere from 40 to 50 different types of pumpkins.
The pumpkins are grown at his family's farm in North Carolina and brought to Chattanooga.
It's a gig he started 33 years ago with Christmas trees.
He decided to add pumpkins to the list seven years ago.
Casey Schumacher is getting a head start on her Fall decor.
"This is my season," Schumacher said. "I love the cooler weather."
Customers came to start shopping early this week, Weaver said.
"We don't officially open until Saturday but it's just like it's been this way ever since I been here, the minute you put up the Christmas trees out or the pumpkins out, they come so that's great we love it," Weaver said.
He said they will close up around Halloween and reopen the week before Thanksgiving for Christmas.
