It’s open! he Downtown Farmers’ Market happens every Wednesday from 4-8 pm along Parrott Street, between E. 14th Street and Washington.
This coming year, 2017, will be our tenth season. Our Farmers’ Market was designed to be a community gathering place, with activities like Cooking Demos, Active Wednesday, Green Day and of course Fourth Wednesday Wine Tastings. The Market is also a draw for its kid-friendly activities, danceable music, and comfortable spots to eat and drink. Our popular passport program was created at this market, and has been copied at other markets. Our Merchant at the Market, Community Services and Information Booths are unique to our Market. You’ll often find our pals Peggy (pictured right) and Larry at the Information Booth, waiting to stamp your passport and answer your questions.
The Farmers’ Market used to begin at the end of April. Due to popular demand, however, we moved the date back–this year to April 1st. At the peak of our season, we serve an average of 2500 patrons! The City, the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA) and Downtown Association work together in different ways to support the Market. Ours is a favorite market with vendors; they sign up for the market when there are any openings. (If you’re interested in being a vendor, please see the PCFMA site.)
