will have its own farmers’ market this year, on Thursday evenings from May 19
through September. The market is planned for a space across from city hall,
behind Walgreen’s and between Merkley and West Capitol Avenues.
The organizers at the West Sacramento Chamber
of Commerce have just put out a call for “certified producers,” and invite
local farmers to apply. The Chamber can provide guidance on getting state
certification as a “certified” provider.
The Chamber earlier told the News-Ledger that
the local farmers market aims to bring farmers to town to sell their goods
directly to West Sacramentans. The Thursday
night event is scheduled so as not to conflict with neighboring markets such as
those in Davis and Sacramento. This will allow farmers to be at
each local market.
The market is planned to run from 4-8 p.m. on
Interested West Sacramento and Yolo County
farmers may call 371-7042 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
