Market brings season’s finest to Clayton

Shawn Lipetzky, regional manager for the Clayton area, was eager for the return of the Clayton Farmers Market on May 11.

“We hope it will be better than ever this year, and I look forward to seeing everyone out enjoying the sun and supporting local farmers on Saturdays,” he said.

The Clayton Farmers Market, located at 6095 Main St. downtown, will be open 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays until Sept. 21.

Resendiz Farms of Hughson will be offering their fabulous fresh stone fruit, everything from cherries to peaches.

Chay’s Farm from Royal Oaks will have succulent strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Rosa’s Portuguese Bakery will showcase some of her decadent pastries and cakes.

Alvarado Apiary will bring their sweet local honey. With their bees buzzing around collecting nectar right in Clayton, it can’t get more local than that. Hanson Farms, also from just down the road in Clayton, will be selling fresh lamb and goat roasts, chops and jerky. It’s time to get out the grill for Memorial Day gatherings.

Though small in size, the Clayton market offers a little bit of everything – from fruits and vegetables to other tasty items. We hope you come out and enjoy your community farmers market.
