Every Saturday the Farmer’s Market is open from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., in Centro, at Plaza Zaragoza. It will be a little different this year due to Covid-19 – but so far there are more than 24 vendors confirmed!  Organizers  ask that everyone enter the square wearing a face mask, respect social distancing, carry cloth bags [no more plastic bags at the market] and have lots of change for the vendors. All vendors are welcome – including artists!  There will be no cooking demos because of Covid-19, but still a great opportunity to meet friends, see different products and reconnect with vendors who are selling new items.  Stay on this page for the latest updates.[if you would like to read about the history of the market, now in its 10th year, or if you are interested in becoming a vendor – or seeing the list of participating vendors please click here.]
