About Farmers Market Events

In October 2013 the Business Organization of Old Town started a year-round Saturday Morning Farmers Market located in the old DMV Parking lot (625 Pollasky Avenue@Bullard) from 8-11:30 AM.  This small market has everything you need for your local, seasonal shopping:  Top o’ the Morn bottled milk (try their flavored milks!) and cheese; Smiling Oranges with fresh squeezed orange juice and oranges–they also carry Matthew’s Honey and Bee Pollen along with fresh eggs (both duck and chicken). Trevino Family Farms gets the vote for “best booth” and carries fresh eggs (duck, turkey and chicken) fresh vegetables, fruits, raisins and herbs–including homemade Lavendar Salt and Luffas!  Shasky Farms has a wonderful assortment of nuts (including red walnuts) and fresh seasonal fruit; G.T. Florists & Herbs have a large assortment of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers; Tasty Cow has grass fed beef (roasts, steaks, ground beef) and  Ferrer Farms has seasonal, local grown fruits and veggies.  While our growers grow organically for the most part, Farmer & the Dale is our Certified Organic grower with seasonal fruits, nuts, and fresh Pomengranate Juice!

The Old Town Clovis Friday Night Farmers Market opens for the season on the 2nd Saturday in May and continues through the end of September.  The crowds are large and people line the streets waiting to hear, and dance to, live concerts, purchase the freshest produce and have tasty summer treats from snow cones to kettle corn. You can view the upcoming band to the right of this about box.

We have many Certified Producers such as Sumner-Peck, Annie’s Produce, Shasky Farms, G.T. Florists & Herbs and Mao Farms to name a few, as well as Certified organic producers like Farmer & the Dale.  Our Farmers Market also supports the NOSH Program – “To Provide, To Nourish, To Give”. This “eat one-give one” program helps provide nourishing fresh fruits and vegetables to families in need distributed through five Clovis pantries.

When you’re done with buying your fruits and vegetables for the week head over to the food vendors as grab a bite to eat. Our food vendors include; Yosemite Concessions, Salsa’s Restaurant, Bobby Salazar’s, Corner Café and Mattie’s Pizza. Returning specialties and gourmet folks Glacier Bay Shave Ice, Good Time Kettle Korn, Sanchez Corn, Scoops, Soups & More,  Baba’s Foods and Sweeties Cotton Candy. We have added several new specialty vendors, i.e. Amber Avenue Coffee Roasters, Lumpia Hut, Raw Fresno, Sweet Izzy’s, Butternut Bakery, and more!

Our information booth is located between 4th and 5th Streets on Pollasky Avenue and passersby can stop and buy our new Farmers Market t-shirts or ask a variety of questions to our staff who man the booth.
