Fresno Farmers Market to open soon

| April 18, 2014

FRESNO – Without question, this past winter has been one for the record books. We all saw temps dip down into the negatives, blowing snow, ice and freezing rain. They were all good reminders to just how blessed we are when springtime arrives. Amen!

Springtime and the Fresno Farmer’ Market has been a long time coming this year, but on Saturday, May 3 at 8:00 a.m., the Fresno Market in downtown Fresno will open for the 2014 market season. Many familiar vendors along with several new faces will be once again bringing the “farm to your family’s table”. After the long, cold winter that we all endured, how wonderful will it be to have easy access to farm fresh goodness, I can hardly wait myself! Large fresh brown eggs, homemade bread and noodles, Amish baked goods, jams & jellies, herbal tea blends, bedding & vegetable plants and possibly the first fresh greens from local gardens.

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, the process is very simple. Arrive and setup, have a cup of coffee or two, sell your goods and wares, eat a bite of lunch, visit with friends and neighbors, sell more, and finally, if you are able donate to the “pickle jar” when Mark McCoy passes it around, that’s great. After all, we aren’t just about “farm to table” here in Fresno, although that is awesome and what we strive for, but we are also about community support and fellowship as well.

There is no set vendor’s space fee. We operate on a good faith donation basis only. Everyone, no matter how old or young, big or small, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to bring their homemade and homegrown items to the Fresno Farmers’ Market.

The market is open every Saturday morning 8 a.m. until noon, May through October. We all look forward to a terrific 2014 market season here in downtown Fresno! See you all on May 3! For more information, questions, or suggestions, please call Mark McCoy at 740-545-0997 or me Julia Brown at 740-545-0849 anytime.
