The 60th Annual Lord’s Acre Harvest Sale — where shoppers can stock up on all kinds of fresh fall produce, canned goods, homemade pies and handmade crafts and attend worship service — will be held Saturday in Galax’s Felts Park.
The event is sponsored by Carroll-Grayson United Workers for Christ Association. The sale is a main fundraiser for many local churches.
The day begins with a worship service and gospel singing at 9:30 a.m., followed by the sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., offering everything from canned green beans and tomatoes, to jellies, jams, apple butter and honey to Philly steaks, pork rinds and popcorn, to homemade apple cider and arts and crafts.
Everything is locally harvested, handmade or handcrafted.
The sale was started in 1951 by the late Methodist minister Richard Hamblin. Many local churches use the event to raise funds for their upkeep, special projects or to help those in need.
People come from all over, traveling from South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia and all over the state to grab some of the best crafts and Southern foods.
Dozens of churches are expected to set up at the Lord’s Acre Sale.
