West Sacramento Mobile Farmers Market returns, Yolo Juneteenth Celebration

The Center for Land-Based Learning will host its Mobile Farmers Market Launch Event on Sunday, June 4 in West Sacramento.

“Come distribute and celebrate the start of a new season, grab your produce, listen to the music and enjoy a perfect summer morning in The Bridge District,” the event’s website said.

The 9:30 a.m. to noon launch will take place outside Franquette — located at 985 Bridge St. — and will feature yoga by Doma Studios, music and flowers by Wholehearted Blooms.

The mobile market was launched in June 2021 as part of the center’s urban farm program.

Heather Lyon, program coordinator, explained that the program strives to add culturally inclusive products to better serve the city’s diverse community.

“A lot of our customers are from Afghanistan, a lot are from Eastern Europe,” Lyon said in an interview in January. “One of the things we try to do is work with them and then work with our sponsors to identify which vegetables or fruits they would like to have access to that are culturally important to them.”

Lyon pointed out that the farmers at the center will then grow these fruits and vegetables so that they can have them available on the truck.

“I think a really fun part of the truck is that as we get to know the community, it becomes more culturally diverse with all kinds of products, especially from the Middle East,” she pointed out.
