The Stanislaus County Fair is bringing fresh and organic flavors as part of the new Farmers’ Market at the Fair.

Guests will be able to purchase and sample fresh organic produce, hand cut toffee, warm roasted almonds, and freshly cut fruit during the 10-day run of the Fair. The Fair has partnered with Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market to offer healthier choices for guests.

“We truly wanted to celebrate our local farmers in the Central Valley and showcase to our guests what our agricultural community has to offer,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “We would also like to invite local farmers who may be interested in participating at our Farmers Market to contact us.”

The Farmers’ Market at the Fair will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Vendors are offered a 10 x 10 space available to them all 10 days of the Fair.
