Oshman JCC launching its own farmers marketUploaded: Apr 30, 2014
Palo Alto will soon have another weekly farmers market, with the Oshman Family JCC launching its own on this Friday, May 2.
Year-round from then on, about 20 fresh-food and produce stands will be selling their goods (fruits and vegetables, baked goods and the like) from 1 to 6 p.m. every Friday in the JCC's Jessica Lynn Sall Town Square. A variety of rotating food trucks will also make an appearance for the Friday lunch rush, from about 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"Now people will have an easy way to stock up on healthy, local food for the weekend. Anyone in the neighborhood can just pop in at lunch, on their way home from work, after exercising in our fitness center or after picking up their kids from school, grab what they need and go," OFJCC Event Coordinator Katie Chapin said in a press release.
Free parking will be provided in the community center garage.
The new market is certified by the West Coast Farmers Market Association, which also operates a Friday market at the El Camino Hospital in Mountain View.
