Livermore’s Thursday evening market is set to open June 18, from 4 to 8 p.m., in Carnegie Park.
This market is an essential food outlet and will be filled with 35 local farms, bringing the best of their spring harvest: Sweet corn from Brentwood; apricots and award-winning jams, from Patterson; and crisp fresh vegetables from the Central Valley. The first of the season’s vine-ripened tasty early girl tomatoes will be in as well as the famous crispy Stockton red onions. Market goers are encouraged to pick vine-ripened organic strawberries and the season’s incoming sweet stone fruit from Reedley. Spring crops of fresh picked coastal lettuces, English peas from Half Moon Bay, flavorful green garlic and leeks are currently in abundance.
The community can look forward to two full bountiful markets of local family farms as summer approaches. The Sunday morning farmers market is open on Second Street, between South J Street and South K Street, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
