Hochtoberfest celebrates German food and traditions


KILLALOE – The Killaloe Farmers’ Market went out with a bang during the annual Hochtoberfest held on October 10.

The farmers’ market first started in 2001, when four Killaloe women suggested that Hoch Farm would be an appropriate site for the weekly market. In 2005, the museum was opened at Hoch Farm and in 2006, a large garage sale was held at the barn. It was the start of the recycle, reuse flea market.

Lynne Postill is the organizer of the farmers’ market and annual Hochtoberfest.  

“My vendors said it was difficult for them to bring all their wares plus a table and umbrella every week in their car,” Postill said.
