Napa Farmers Market Celebrates the Start of the Tuesday Market; Customers treated to a live KVYN-FM broadcast and a shopping bag giveaway

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Napa, CA (March 27, 2019) —Tuesday, April 2, is opening day for the weekday morning Napa Farmers Market, which will continue each Tuesday through the end of October in the parking lot of the South Napa Century Center from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. To celebrate the start of the first Tuesday market of 2019, Napa Farmers Market will be giving away a free, reusable black shopping bag to the first 50 shoppers. The bag, which features the market’s logo and a handy pocket for fold-up, compact storage, will be available at the information booth while supplies last.

As an added treat, local radio personality Bob St. Laurent of 99.3 FM “The Vine” will be broadcasting live from the market, interviewing new vendors and adding color, fun and live music to the shopping experience. KVYN-FM is a proud sponsor of the Napa Farmers Market music stage, which features performances by local musicians during the market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Will and Julissa Marcencia of Wine Down Media are regular market shoppers and will soon be new market neighbors as they plan to begin broadcasting from their new studio located in the Century Center soon.

New Vendors & Return of Saturday Chef Demo
While most of the beloved veteran vendors will be present on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the market is excited to announce several new additions to the market starting in April. On Tuesdays, Golden Rows Gardens (cut flower bouquets) and Studio 3000 (wood cutting boards) will join the market. Also returning to the market after a hiatus will be Alma’s Oilcloth (Mexican oilcloth by the yard, oilcloth totes, aprons and accessories).

On Saturdays, we’ll be welcoming certified organic producer Riverdog Farm (chicken and pork); specialty food vendor Wooden Spoon Bakery and Open Door Provisions (seasonally changing baked goods) ; and artisans Birgitt Hellemann Glass Jewelry, Chandler Designs (pet portraits), and Jessica Jo Designs (silver jewelry).

The Saturday Chef Demo will also kick off on April 6 at 10 am with Napa Farmers Market Board Member Sandy Sauter. Sauter is Executive Chef of Public Programs, California, at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and co-owner and managing partner at Spork Kitchens, a commercial rental kitchen in Napa.

Volunteers Needed
Recently voted “Best Farmers Market in Napa County” in the North Bay Bohemian’s Best of the North Bay Awards, Napa Farmers Market is seeking more volunteers to help in the information booth and to read for Story Time, which will once again take place twice per market on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 9:30 am and 10:30 am.
