For Immediate Release

Stanton, Calif. – May 4, 2017 – The grand opening celebration of the Stanton Farmers Market was a tremendous success with approximately 400 people gathering at Stanton Central Park to participate in the market’s inauguration.

The official grand opening ceremony held on Thursday, April 27, 2017 featured words from Stanton Mayor Carol Warren, City Officials and State Representatives followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony, giveaways and the raffle of $200 worth in “farmer’s bucks”. One lucky patron won both farmer’s bucks and a shopping cart donated by the Stanton Community Foundation.

The 25 vendors on hand offered something for everyone, from local certified produce to wares and prepared meals. In the seating area attendees enjoyed live entertainment while feasting on some of the many delicious meal options.

“Farmers markets are a great way of reestablishing the traditional link between farmers and consumers, by offering locally grown produce and meals made from fresh ingredients at each event,” commented Lee Ostendorf, Local Harvest Certified Farmers Markets Director. “The 25 vendors who participated in the grand opening are just the beginning. We anticipate being at full capacity within a couple of months with new vendors being added each week.”

The City of Stanton would like to thank all who participated in the grand opening celebration and invites everyone to attend the Stanton Farmers Market on Thursdays from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at Stanton Central Park, 10660 Western Ave. between Cerritos Ave. and Katella Ave.
