Farmers Market News

Let`s nurture the Earth & creativity at the market this Saturday!

This Earth Day (Saturday, April 20th), join us for a fun, eco-conscious craft activity where kids can create their own seed balls. ๐ŸŒŽ

Seed balls are a wonderful way to spread wildflowers and native plants, beautifying our community while supporting a healthy ecosystem. ๐ŸŒฑ

We provide all the materials and guidance needed for this fun, hands-on activity for your kids.

Visit us at the market on 16th St. between H & I Sts. in Modesto from 8 AM to 1 PM this Thursday & Saturday ๐Ÿฅ•
