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.
