Dickens Faire 2018 is coming up! This holiday faire has become an honored local tradition, and is an incredible event for all who attend. For the last several years, the Modesto Certified Farmers’ Market has had the privilege of participating. This is a privilege we are proud to continue, just with a twist this year. Typically, the farmers’ market section of the Dickens is mixed in on 15th Street between J & I, but this year we will be at our usual market spot on 16th Street between I and J. This is to allow all of your favorite market vendors to be a part of this wonderful event, whereas our traditional Dickens location was limited on space. This also allows the main part of Dickens (run by the wonderful McHenry Mansion Visitor’s Center) to fill in those spaces with even more amazing holiday vendors. There will be musical entertainment provided on both streets, as well. Essentially, you now have twice the shopping to do this year, and twice the fun to experience. It’s a win-win for everyone, so make sure you don’t miss out!
