The planning for a farmer's market is well underway. This is a serious and organized effort of the California Historic District. An informal survey indicated the majority of the participants are in agreement a farmer's market is a high priority need for the California area. The committee has discovered such an endeavor is much more than simply publicizing the selling of homegrown produce. There are state laws that have to be addressed by an organized group with authority to manage and supervise. The planning committee is gathering information and searching for a location. After more studies and complete information are addressed, a public meeting will be held to gather suggestions and concerns from anyone with an interest in participating as a vendor. Local arts and crafts and services will be included in this market.
Field Trips planned for all ages
