Mark's Melon Patch is located in southwest Georgia just outside the little town of Sasser, and is well known for having some of the freshest produce around. For the past 30 years, families from across the state and country have visited the Highway 82 roadside market for their delicious fresh fruits, vegetables, and family fun atmosphere. Mark's Melon Patch offers a little extra fun this time of year with their night time hayrides, usually the last Wednesday thru Saturday before Halloween. They carve 100 jack-o-lanterns and place along the hayride path, along with tiki torches for additional lighting. Mark says it is a family- friendly hayride with just a "touch" of scary! They also offer special Flashlight nights through their corn maze on these nights. For more information, visit their website at
