Kids enjoy the soft blocks while their parents shop the market Sept. 28, 2013.

Go Ask Mom will be at the Midtown Farmers' Market at North Hills next weekend for lots of free fun for kids and families.

We've lined up some great activities from 8 a.m. to noon, Sept. 13, at the market, which is around the commons near the movie theater. And, of course, you can always fill up your bags with fresh produce, baked goods and more from the vendors at the market.

We'll bring out gourmet cotton candy from Oscar Williams Cotton Candy Co.; a visit from the Chick-fil-A cow; yet-to-be-named princess from Fairytale Dreamer; an activity from Flour Power Kids Cooking Studio (formerly Lil' Chef); a farm-themed craft from Mess Makers; and free child IDs from New York Life Insurance Co. (until 10:45 a.m.).

North Raleigh School of Music will offer a demo from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Kristin Schmalzbauer, a local first grade teacher, author and storyteller, will read her story with puppets at 9:35 am. And the Westwood Back Porch string band will play from 10 a.m. to noon.

Stay tuned for more information and details about the big morning. Hope to see you there!
