Facebook to open farmers' market on its Menlo Park campus

 

Fresh produce fans will have a new market to "like" when Facebook launches a weekly farmers' market Oct. 4 on its campus in Menlo Park. Facebook says the market will take place each Sunday year-round in its parking lot at 1 Hacker Way.

The inaugural market is set for Sunday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will feature a kid's zone, food trucks, cooking demos and bike tuneups, said Facebook spokesman Jamil Walker.

The first 200 families to arrive will receive $5 "MOOLA" dollars to be spent at the event, and the first 500 families to arrive will receive reusable shopping bags.

Guests planning to attend can access the farmers' market by entering the campus at Willow Road and Bayfront Expressway.

"The options for fresh produce are limited in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park," Mr. Walker noted in the announcement.

In an email, he added, "We're committed to being an active and responsible neighbor and wanted to provide an additional outlet for the community to have access to fresh fruits and vegetables."
