Farmer’s Market for the Summer!
The Friendly RV Park in South Weed is putting on a Farmer’s Market every Tuesday, from 4 – 7 pm at their location. Go check it out at 1800 Black Butte Dr in Weed. They are looking for more vendors. If you would like to sell fruit & vegetables, you will need to be a certified vendor & have permits through the agricultural department. Not hard to get certified though. If you would like to sell other items, such as crafts, just show up early & reserve a table for $2 & a one time $30 joining fee or pay $5 each time until you hit the $30. Same goes for the fruit & veggie vendors. For more information, contact Caroline at the Friendly RV Park at 938-2805. 😁🍎🍐🌶️🍅
