Folks who visit the Stanislaus County Fair this year can do more than fill their stomachs with sugary and deep fried goodies. They’ll be able to fill their baskets with fresh and organic flavors as part of the new Farmer’s Market at the Fair.

“We truly wanted to celebrate our local farmers in the Central Valley and showcase to our guests what our agricultural community has to offer,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. 

Farm fresh produce and other home baked products will be available for purchase during the 10-day run of the fair. Guests will be able to sample and purchase organic produce, hand cut toffee, warm roasted almonds, and fresh fruit.

“We will be giving away free samples from all of our local vendors,” said Farmer’s Market Manager Derek Griffin. “Guests will be in for a lucky treat because we will be having summer fruit in stock and that means lots of juicy peaches. Our vendors will also be giving away free samples.”

Market  vendors will include: Resendiz Fruit Barn, Pageo Lavender Farms and Cipponery Family Farms. The Farmers’ Market will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 12 noon to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays during the Fair.

“Come out and enjoy the fair this year with a healthier twist this summer,” said Griffin. “We hope to see a good turnout this year and start a tradition of doing it year after year.”
