Gilroy Spice of Life Certified Farmers Market

 

Fridays, starting June 2 and running into the fall, the Gilroy Demonstration Garden will sponsor the Downtown Gilroy Spice of Life Certified Farmers Market.  The market will be open from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.  It will showcase a variety of local farms and businesses, including a stand with the Garden's own produce.  Food trucks from Movable Feast will be in attendance.  And during the middle of the summer, 5th Street Live will provide music and entertainment as well.  On Fridays Downtown Gilroy will be THE place to be this summer.

 

We are still looking for vendors.

We are also still looking for sponsors:

For the past 7 years the Gilroy Demonstration Garden (GDG) has created a place in the community for local residents to thrive, commune and learn about growing healthy foods and why it is important to buy locally. This year GDG will host the Downtown Gilroy Spice of Life Farmers Market, giving an opportunity to expand its outreach to the community.

We are looking for volunteers:

We would very much like help at each market.  Some volunteers will help with the market as a whole, setting up, tearing down, directing vendors, answering questions and more.  Other volunteers will help with the Garden stand, selling produce, talking to customers about the garden, setting up and tearing down.
