In October 2017, Downtown Fresno’s farmers’ market concluded its 11th season with fresh produce and goods from local vendors. Each Wednesday from April to October 2017, hundreds of employees, residents, and visitors came to The Market on Kern to enjoy treats, fresh grocery finds, and unique entertainment throughout the market.

Over 20 weekly vendors were showcased. Fresh fruit and vegetables from certified farmers, herbs, honey, fresh-cut flowers, handmade soaps and body care, and crafts were available for downtown shoppers, along with an assortment of prepared food ready for breakfast and lunch. There were also free concerts featuring local musicians and DJs to entertain market goers from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. To stay up-to-date, be sure to like and follow The Market on Kern on Facebook.

Special thanks to our 2017 sponsor, Civic Center Square.
