Farmer's Market brings hundreds to downtown

On the heels of Shafter's first First Friday event of the year, the city held its first Farmer's Market of the year last Saturday. The event drew more than double the crowd from last, estimated at 200, with options from fresh vegetables to honey and snacks and seasonings.

There also was prepared food available, giving the crowd a variety of snacks and drinks. One of the vendors was local celebrity Jenny Holtermann, also known as Almond Girl Jenny.

Also for sale was a variety of locally grown vegetables, including tomatoes, carrots, onions, as well as peppers and fruits as well.

Another popular booth at the market was a vendor offering fresh mushrooms, with small button mushrooms to huge portabella mushrooms.

The Farmer's Market will be repeating all summer on the Saturdays after First Friday, like the First Friday events, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in August and September.

As Almond Girl Jenny said, it is a great chance to shop local, get really fresh produce and support our local farmers..
