Farmers Market Shines With Success For First Week
All of the fidget spinners and pop-its a child could ask for were available from this vendor, along with stuffed animals and other toys and trinkets.

Even with the last minute change to the location, Oakdale’s Farmers Market had a successful first Wednesday, hopefully the first of many for the summer.

One night a week local vendors get a chance to set up and showcase their homemade treasures from leather jewelry, to crystal accessories, to farm fresh fruits and veggies.

Most vendors were returning from past market years but some joined in for their first year showcasing their product at the Oakdale Farmers Market. Due to the ongoing construction project along North Third Avenue, the market has relocated to East E Street, running between First and Third avenues.

One business that is new is year was Klean Eatz, slicing up their homemade sourdough, the business owners originally from the Ripon area.

Some returning vendors included Raising Reagan Designer Crystals, Rosa’s Bakery, Ox Tamales, Kookie Now, and many more.

The new location gave a new feel to the market with opportunities for growth and adding more vendors. Live music will also be featured throughout the summer on most Wednesdays.

The Oakdale Farmers Market is every Wednesday, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., continuing through the end of September.

Stone pizza
A fan favorite returned to dish out creative wood fired pizza and that vendor is Rock Pizza. The pizza shown is their margarita pizza consisting of tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil, and drizzled with a sweet balsamic glaze.
Salt and light co
The Salt and Light Co brought in their own flare of bath bombs, bath salts, and body scrubs to the Oakdale Farmers Market, products to leave you smelling good and feeling good. They also set up a portable sink in their area for purchasers to try out the scrubs and scents for the best experience.
