Sunday: Farmers' market in Atherton

Atherton Now will also have plans for civic center on display

A farmers' market featuring entertainment and food trucks will be held in Atherton on Sunday, Sept. 25, from noon to 3 p.m.

Atherton Now, the nonprofit group raising funds for a new Atherton civic center, is sponsoring the event and will display the current plans for the new facilities: a new library, police and administration offices, council meeting chambers and public event spaces, indoors and out.

Tours of the existing town facilities will be offered by Acting Police Chief Joe Wade.

In addition to food trucks, including Big Ed's Buzzard BBQ and Bopas' iced concoctions, there will be a disc jockey, free face painting and carnival games. The first 100 guests will receive half off at some of the food trucks.

There will be an oyster bar, plus fresh produce and seafood, cut flowers and bakery items for sale.

Sandy Levison, co-chair of Atherton Now, said organizers hope the event will help build a sense of community in Atherton. "With this special outdoor fair and market, we hope to give our residents a taste of what's to come," in the new civic center, Ms. Levison said.

We can't do it without you.
