Farm Tours

Ever wonder where all this great produce comes from?
Fred Yen, our market manager, visits the farms, who sell in our market, to see what they are growing, how they are growing it, and invites market guests to take the tour  with him. It is a very educational tour and one really gets to know the farmers and becomes more knowledgeable about his/her practices.
We will post these tour in our calendar and newsletter so all who are interested can come.
