Seasonal Market News:

Things are looking good for a great farmers’ market season; We look forward to another fun year with all of you!

Cambrian Park starts its 13th season on Labor Day, Wednesday, May 1st from 4 pm to 8 pm thru the end of September 2019.

Willow Glen is slated to relocate back to an exciting new location downtown in May. We have been working hard with the area's city officials and chamber of commerce to secure and bolster this market's success. If you are interested in joining this seasonal Saturday market, please let us know. Returning vendors, be on the lookout for a follow-up email with more details.

In lieu of vendor gifts this year, UVFM has contributed to the "California Beautiful Foundation" to assist farm communities affected by the horrible fires our state experienced in 2017 and 2018.

We are looking forward to working with you, and hope you will include Urban Village Farmers’ Markets in your future plans.

Growing Regards,

Ron Pardini

Executive Director
