Many of the long term vendors, including a couple bakeries, were able to salvage what they could from the COVID impacted season, and hoping for improvement next year.

Market Manager Jade Benetatos said the market, was able to help some additional vendors, like California Gold Kettle Corn that traditionally don’t participate in the Farmers Market.
