DWNTN Art/Farmers Market


By Kimberly Rene’ Vanecek

More than 70 vendors are lined up to display fruits, vegetables and local art at the weekly Downtown Artist and Farmers Market in Union Plaza. The market is a platform for local artist to exhibit their work and for farmers to showcase their locally-grown produce.

DFAM_048_72“This market is a destination for Saturday mornings…it brings traffic for us and other businesses around us and it is increasing the profile for the city. I really want members of the community to know that they can come and use this space for their artwork or produce so that the city can grow,” said Rebecca Munoz, event organizer.

The market runs year round every Saturday from 9am to 1pm in Union Plaza.
