5 Things You Need to Know Today, 10/11
Your last chance to check out the Farmers' Market.
1) The sun will return today, bringing with it clear skies, and temperatures in the high 50s. Windy, gusting up to 35 miles per hour in the morning, 25 in the afternoon. Still clear overnight, with temperatures in the high 40s.
2) The Falmouth Farmers' Market wraps up its 2012 run with its final meeting today, in Peg Noonan Park, from noon to five p.m. That means it's your last chance to check out the wide range of organic, sustainable, locally produced foodstuffs on display. Jam, chocolate, seafood, bread, flowers, and of course fresh fruits and vegetables—including fall favorites like pumpkins—will be available.

3) The Falmouth Arts Center offers a class in Life Drawing, on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, from 7 to 9 p.m. Students can register for one month at a time, for $30 for members, $40 for nonmembers.
