Santa Ana Finally Regains Its Farmers Market

dtsa-fm-logo.png
After years of going without one, Santa Ana is finally regaining its farmers market. There's every reason for Santa Ana to host a large market downtown, given the population, the proliferation of market-driven restaurants, and the long tradition of open-air produce markets in Latino cultures.

The farmers market, which has gotten through the permitting process, will launch soon on Spurgeon between 3rd and 4th, every Thursday from 2-8 p.m., rain or shine. It's part of the re-invention of East Fourth Street that saw the development of the Yost Theatre, Playground, and the Fourth Street Market

Meanwhile, the market is seeking applications from interested vendors, both prepared foods and farmers/ranchers. For further information, including rules and booth fees, contact info@dtsafarmersmarket.com.

We're looking forward to shopping there for our ciruelas, chabacanos, melón y sandía.

Why can't people READ THE ARTICLE for the location details? Lazy!

Well, you won't find cheap crap at the DTSA Farmers Market!  We are so excited for this one to open!  Leave your vouchers at home folks!

Finally a farmers market in OC with realistic attendance hours for patrons! I actually live in Tustin and can never attend my local farmers market due to prohibitive hours. 9 to 1pm? Really? I have this thing...it's called a job and I have to WORK during those hours. Markets with evening hours can do wonderful things for the revitalization of neighborhoods. People that go to shop also will go to local businesses. I will support the DTSA market and will hope that other cities (Tustin!) follow suit.

Organic is such BS. Plus a lot of it comes from China. Anything to make a buck, eh?

Santa ana and organic veggies don't mix well. Corn with mayonnaise and Chile better fit

No beer garden at the Farmer's Market, but there will be one in the Fourth Street Market just a few steps away on Fourth between Bush and Spurgeon.  But you'll have to wait until August.
