Sunday: Facebook holds first farmers' market

 

Facebook will host its inaugural weekly farmers' market on Sunday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in its parking lot at 1 Hacker Way in Menlo Park.

The first 500 families get a reusable bag, and the first 200 families get $5 "MOOLA" vouchers to spend at the market.

Facebook plans to hold the market every Sunday at the same time.

People can access the farmers' market by entering the campus at Willow Road and Bayfront Expressway.

Facebook hopes to attract people from neighborhoods near its offices, including Belle Haven, said Lauren Swezey, Facebook sustainability and community outreach manager. "We recognized that there was a lack of access to fresh produce in the community and put this together to help address the issue," she said.
