Farmers’ market returns to Point Richmond
on May 19, 2010
Point Richmond is known for its tight-knit neighborhood and historic charm. But for six months spanning spring to fall, the streets feature an added flair: Fresh fruits and vegetables, fair-type goodies, and easy music.
For the second straight year, the Point Richmond Farmers’ Market is on from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. every Wednesday night.
“It’s a big social event,” said Councilman Tom Butt, who took in much of the May 12 kickoff from a sidewalk bench, where he chatted with constituents and friends. “It brings not only the community together, but brings people from outside the community into the community.”
The Point Richmond Stroll was paired with the market’s opening night. Traffic was blocked off for the event and local artwork was on display.
The Point Richmond Farmers’ Market will be held each Wednesday evening through Oct. 27.
