Both Fullerton Farmers Markets Open for Produce Only Wednesdays and Thursdays

If you are missing fresh eggs and produce directly from the growers, you will be glad to hear that are TWO farmers markets are coming to downtown Fullerton this week. A certified farmers market means that you are buying directly from the grower, their team or a partnered certified farm, so everything is fresh-picked from farm to consumer – no warehousing, no middleman. You will only find produce that is grown on their or their partners’ specific farm and only what is in season. Social distancing standards (patrons keeping 6 feet apart) will be observed. Growers will wear gloves and will be using appropriate sanitizers. Produce will be available pre-bagged and there will be not be the normal tasting and cut samples.
