The Weekly Dirt
Highlights, Vendors, Events and more. Downtown and Sunset Valley - Sat. June 12
We’re back! Find the SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley in our regular location behind the Toney Burger Center at the end of Bob Horrigan Trail. You can also find us Downtown at Republic Square; both markets run Saturday, 9 AM to 1 PM.

Downtown: Welcome our newest vendor Stoke Juice to the Downtown market. Each bottle is packed with fresh fruits and veggies like the super refreshing Solstice with watermelon, strawberry, lemon, and mint for a cool treat to sustain you while you do your shopping. Another way to make it through the morning is to stop by Billie and Jean's Farm for homegrown squash, radishes, herbs, and tender salad turnips. On your way out make sure to visit our artisan vendors, like Dream Bijoux for a sparkly something just for you. Reasonable prices and repurposed costume jewelry alongside beautifully set fossils and stones.

Sunset Valley: We can see clearly now the rain is gone. Take advantage of this wonderful weather with some easy picnic basket stuffers. Look no further than Bradshaw Farm for a container of bean dip and a loaf of bread, then head to Le Renard Patisserie for a jar of handmade nut butter and peach jam for some sammies. Round it all out with a basket of peaches from Engel Farms and even a ready-to-eat smokes beef sausage from Copper Creek Ranch!
