Arbuckle Farmers Market season opens

2016 - Arbuckle Farmers Market-1Super-sweet peaches, and just-picked apricots were the highlight in an emporium of fresh veggies, pecans, olive oil, and fresh cut flowers during opening night of the Farmers Market.

“We had quite the crowd for the first night,” said Rick Starnater who was selling an array of fresh vegetables. Starnater grows a unique variety of vegetables and enjoys the farmers market immensely.

The summer season and local farmers markets provide an opportunity to see, taste and learn about the incredible variety of farm-fresh produce Colusa County has to offer.

While many came to browse the harvest bounty, others browsed local merchants selling jewelry, beauty products, candles and much more.

“I was super excited to be back in Arbuckle and see so many familiar faces it was really nice catching up with people,” said Barbara Gomes of Oragami Owl, “I love the small community of Arbuckle and the support they give to small business.”

Jefferys Pecans was available with bags of locally grown pecans – all for the summers delight.

Also available at the market was locally grown olive oil, fresh cut flowers from Grimes, as well as BeautiControl and Scentsy dealers.

Market Street Grill returned with it’s delicious prepared dinners, and is expected to return weekly; and Mary Fahey with Wise Acre Farms had farm fresh eggs available.
