Mercer Island Youth and Family Services will celebrate autumn with the sixth annual Pumpkin Patch fundraiser.

Glass pumpkins, available through October at Island merchants, help raise money for MIYFS and the City of Mercer Island’s human services department. This year’s featured glass blowers are Islanders Joni Johnson, Ryan Blythe, Heath Connor and Sean Star.

The Pumpkin Patch will be the Mercer Island Farmers Market’s featured vendor during the Harvest Market on Nov. 18.
