The Lodi Valley Farmers’ Market celebrates its 9th season, opening on April 24th and we would like to invite you to participate in this great Lodi tradition.  We are very pleased that the market will continue to set up in the Market Park next to the Northern Edge Supper Club at the corner of Highway 113 (No. Main Street) and County J.  We look forward to working with our good neighbors, Annette & Rick Fassbender again this market season.

The market will again be held on Friday afternoons from 2pm to 6pm, setup beginning no earlier than 1:00pm.  Pre-registration is not required, and the daily fee is still only $3.  Daily spaces are assigned on a first come basis.  Seasonally reserved spaces will be assigned on a first-paid basis.  Checks are accepted prior to April 24th.  Vendors paying monthly will be accommodated as best as space allows.

This year the market once again opens in conjunction with the Lodi Area Community Garage Sales, Lodi’s  ‘Daffodil Days’ weekend.  This first market will also be our annual “Ungarage ReCycle Sale” for those folks with stuff to sell but no garage.  Handmade, homegrown, or anything goes!  We hope you all can join us on this very busy Friday, when we will also be celebrating National Arbor Day in Tree City, U.S.A.  Crabapple, maple, and spruce trees will be available again for the first visitors.

Our 2009 season’s theme is ‘Buy Fresh Buy Local’.   We have great new plans for more fun and educational events that are being scheduled.  We expect that our Garden GiveAways, numerous demonstrations, live music and other weekly features will draw lots of attention from the community as a whole and vendors alike.  Our new Market Manager, Gail Lamberty is a dynamic and creative person that you all will enjoy working with.  Lyn Lorenz will still serve as market coordinator to answer your questions. The Lodi Enterprise has generously agreed to serve as our print media sponsor again this year, and our on-line media sponsor, LodiValleyNews.com will be offering the market lots of visibility as well for the entire season.

Please feel free to contact coordinator Lyn Lorenz at 608.635.4105 or at P.O. Box 96 Lodi 53555, should you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing you this season at the Market!
