With a few more weeks left on their schedule, organizers of the Small Town Roots Farmers Market in Escalon are encouraging the community to come out and see what’s available.

Offered at 2996 McHenry each Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon, the market features vendors with fresh produce, bakery items, specialty products – including gluten free and vegan options – along with flowers, books, herbs, handcrafted items and more. Live music has also been part of the market on several Saturdays and there have been appearances by face painters, artists and storytellers as well.

Those residents who might not have the transportation to get to the market can take advantage of the local bus service, eTrans, which is offering a special weekend trip to the location. Through Oct. 6, eTrans will operate the service on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. Interested customers may call (209) 541-6645 to arrange a ride and only need to call 15 minutes in advance. The fare for this service is $1.50 one way for adults and students and 75 cents for seniors, persons with disabilities and Medicare card holders. Regular One-Day, 10-Ride, and 31-Day Passes are also accepted on this service.
