Austin Harvest Market Kicks Off Friday

CHICAGO (CBS)-- An outdoor fall festival is being held today and it's being put on by high school students.

The Austin Harvest Market is an open-air market featuring fresh produce, pumpkin decorating and live music.

It started earlier this summer when teenagers transformed a looted liquor store into a market. Their goal is to reduce food scarcity.

The fest kicks off at 2 p.m. at 423 North Laramie Avenue.
