A new Lakewood Farmers Market will soon open Saturdays from 8am - 1pm on the city property at Del Amo Blvd. and Clark Ave.
The Farmers Market will feature California-certified fresh produce, crafts and pre-packaged goods, with 20-30 vendors joining throughout the month of November as the market grows in size. Items will include hot prepared foods, organic chicken, fresh fish, eggs, honey, hummus, vegan dishes, baked goods, nut butters, juices, coffee and iced coffee drinks, with a shaded dining area for customers.
The market will be run by the operators of a longstanding successful Farmers Market in Long Beach (at Clark Ave. and Spring St.). At the end of each market day, Lakewood Meals on Wheels will collect produce and pre-packaged donations from the vendors.
A grand opening event for the Farmers Market will take place after Thanksgiving, with special giveaways for attendees. Details will be announced in late November on the City of Lakewood website and weekly eMagazine. To subscribe to the free eMagazine, visit www.lakewoodcity.org/subscribe.
