East Sacramento Farmers Market—don’t miss this great community asset

East Sacramento Farmers Market—don’t miss this great community asset

by Michael Saeltzer

Kudos to East Sacramentan Ann Vulech Clark for organizing what is fast becoming another one of our community’s best features. The market opened in May and is held every Saturday next to the Shepard Garden and Arts Center, the small section of McKinley Park just east of the main park (rose garden, playground, pond).  Ann envisions the market to be a combination farmers market, community event, and a great gathering spot to begin a Saturday with your neighbors.

To find out more online you can visit Facebook East Sacramento Farmers Market.  When you are at the market you might want to take the time to chat it up with the vendors who are some of the most friendly there are.  They offer smiles, and incredible research and information about our mother earth and what really makes her happy – all ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE!  Take the time to read just a bit more about them further on in this article...
