Happy Fourth of July Everyone! In celebration of everyone’s favorite holiday we will be starting off the month with our First Youth and Families Day at the Laurel Community Farmers’ Market!
The market is located at 4173 Macarthur in the parking lot of the Laurel Office Center and is open SATURDAYS from 10am-2pm. Youth and Families day is a way for OFC to show our appreciation for all the families in the community that have supported us!
We’ve got all sorts of things planned: Live musical performances throughout the day by local favorite Iya Khan, games, activities and face painting for kids as well as an OFC raffle to be announced at the end of the day!
Come by and check out the festivities and support our awesome vendors: JP and family of J&P Organics, Biscotti di Bianchi, Bee Healthy Honey, bead jewelry by Sue Richardson and new vendor Mee Vang of Patao Farms from Fresno! Plus a fresh-made meal being served up by the Purple Lawn Café! Come celebrate the Fourth with OFC!
PS: Thank you to all of you that have voted for us on Care2 and LocalHarvest's "Love Your Farmers' Market" Contest! We already have over 30 votes! Thank you for your continued support of our market and our efforts to get fresh, healthy, affordable food to everyone!
