Bay Street Farmers’ Market returns this Saturday with Grand Opening Celebration

Published On April 28, 2016 | By Bobby Lee | Events, In the Neighborhood, Local Businesses

After a successful trial run last year, the Bay Street Farmers’ Market returns this Saturday April 30th from 3-7 p.m. with more fresh foods and a special Arts & Crafts Market. The “Twilight Market” series will play host to dozens of vendors selling fresh produce, organic fruits, eggs, cheeses, gluten-free baked goods, and other local foods. The newly added Arts & Crafts market, curated by Nneka’s Marketplace, will feature a dozen Artisan and Makers from around the Bay Area.

“It’s a unique market because the time is mid-Saturday,” says Sam Andreski, Market Manager for The Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA). “So if you can’t make it to other early morning markets, make it to Bay Street instead!” PCFMA is a non-profit organization who describes its mission as “empowering California farmers to be enormously successful in Bay Area communities.”

Saturday’s special grand opening celebrations will feature Emeryville Mayor Dianne Martinez for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Madison Marquette, who is sponsoring the Farmers’ Market events, will be giving away $10 in “carrot cash” for the first 100 shoppers to visit their Bay Street promotional booth. Free reusable shopping bags will be available at the booth as well.

The Twilight Market will continue every Saturday from 3-7 p.m. through October 1st.
