With the calendar now reading late May, the Sonora Certified Farmers Market is back each Saturday morning through October 18th.
Erin O’Hare, Sonora Farmer’s Market Supervisor, was Wednesday’ KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
O’Hare said that the Sonora Certified Farmers market runs every Saturday morning 7:30 – 11:30 AM.
For the consumer, the term “certified” means that the farmer is selling his or her food directly to those attending the market. If a market isn’t certified, it could mean that the seller bought the food from a farmer for resale. The purchaser isn’t necessarily assured of the foods origin.
Craft booths can also be found at the Farmers Market. O’Hare said that the City requires that all crafts sold, are directly made by those who are doing the selling.
The Farmer’s Market is located on Theall and Stewart Street in Downtown Sonora.
O’Hare reminds us that no one is allowed to bring pets. That rule is per the Health Department. Since dogs and other animals were popular in the past, O’Hare continues to ask the public to please adhere to the new rule.

The KVML “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
