The Springs debuts its Farmer’s Market this Sunday in Larson Park, from 4 to 7 p.m.
A project of Supervisor Susan Gorin, the Springs Community Farmer’s Market begins July 9 and runs for 10 Sunday evenings.
The market manager is Kelly Smith, of the nonprofit Agricultural Community Events Farmers Markets, which operates 13 farmers markets in Marin and Sonoma counties including Kenwood, Petaluma, Santa Rosa and Tiburon.
“We are fortunate to have Kelly Smith at the helm of this effort,” Gorin said. “She is terrific and experienced.”
The market will have a “locals-first mandate,” Gorin, said, and will be dog friendly. A certified market, it will have EBT as well as food vendors and booths for local nonprofits. Parking will be available at the nearby Flowery School. “We are currently connecting the operator with local organization to set up family activities and community engagement.”
“Come down for some fun times in the beautiful location of Larson Park,” Gorin said. The address is 329 DeChene Avenue. “I can’t wait to see everyone out there this summer.”
