Danville Farmers’ Market Open Friday, July 3rd, Closed Saturday, July 4th

Danville, CA (July, 2009) - Due to the Annual 4th of July Parade and other local activities, the very popular Saturday Danville Farmers’ Market will be closed for the 4th of July. But don’t panic! There will be a special farmers’ market on Friday, July 3rd, 9am to 1pm, in the same parking lot as the Saturday market at Railroad and Prospect. All your favorite producers will be there on the 3rd so you won’t miss a thing. There will be great live music, tasty hot foods, and a special patriotic flag give-away.

The entire Danville community is invited to join us for this patriotic celebration of your local farmers and their fresh and local foods. Market manager, Max Timms, says “There will be great fun, live music and the best produce available. It’s going to be a lot of fun for everyone. Come celebrate the holiday with us.”

Whether you’re looking for juicy peaches, flowering orchids, flavorful onions and zucchini, sweet strawberries, Asian greens, fresh seafood, crisp green beans, vitamin-packed tomatoes or any other summer produce items, you’ll find them at the Danville Farmers’ Market. More than two dozen California farmers and other food producers are expected to be selling their goods in the market on July 3rd.

The Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association is the state’s largest operator of Certified Farmers’ Markets, with over 60 Certified Farmers’ Markets weekly in the Bay Area during the peak summer months. Certified Farmers’ Markets are locations that offer only California-grown products sold directly to consumers by the farmers that grew, nurtured and harvested the crops. All PCFMA markets accept WIC FMNP (Woman Infant and Children Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupons) and EBT (the Golden State advantage food stamp cards).
