The Los Altos Farmers’ Market is slated to return 4-8 p.m. Thursday along State Street in the downtown triangle.
To kick off the season, the market will host a variety of activities for both children and adults, including kids crafts, sangria tasting, live music and a $100 market basket raffle. A ribbon cutting is set for 5 p.m. to officially open the market for the 2019 season.
Children attending the opening day will be greeted by large murals to color and can make free crafts. Adults can sample sangria, featuring local cherries from the market, at the Los Altos Village Association booth.
The market will again run concurrently with the Downtown Green pop-up park, hosting events such as fruit tastings, cooking demonstrations and flower crown making on the Green Thursday evenings July 25 through Aug. 22. The annual Los Altos Farmers’ Market Kids’ Day is scheduled July 25.
The market will feature Rodriguez Farms’ vine-ripened organic strawberries and Iacopi Farms’ spring vegetables like crisp sugar snap peas.
“We look forward to another successful season of connecting the community with family farms who grow your food,” said Kayla Hayden, market manager.
The Los Altos Village Association and the city of Los Altos co-sponsor the farmers’ market, weekly events approved by the County Agricultural Commissioner where farmers offer for sale only those fruits and vegetables they grow themselves.
