Applications are available for local farmers, artisans, merchants and community organizations wishing to participate in the weekly outdoor “Fullerton Market” opening Thursday, April 7.

           

Now into its 20th year, the market will feature imported and handmade crafts and apparel, food booths, live entertainment, activities for young people, and the freshest in farm produce.

 

“The atmosphere is that of an open air market where shoppers meet their neighbors and get to know their community a little better, as well as find lots of bargains,”  said Ashley Glass, special events coordinator for the city.

           

Market hours are 4-8:30 p.m., and admission is free. 

 

The market will be held in the Downtown Plaza and on Wilshire Avenue, between Harbor Boulevard and Pomona Avenue, adjacent to the Fullerton Museum Center.  Wilshire Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic during market hours.

 

Parking for the market may be found in any of the free downtown lots or in the parking structures at Wilshire (enter from Harbor);  Lemon Street and Chapman Avenue;  and in the Transportation Center on Pomona and Santa Fe Avenue.

           

The market is open to certified farmers, artists and crafters, Fullerton businesses, nonprofit organizations and food vendors.  Applications must be completed at least seven days prior to the desired date of participation in the market.

 

Booth applications and further information may be obtained at the Fullerton Museum Center, 301 N. Pomona Ave., or by calling the museum at (714) 738-6545.

           

After April 7, applications may also be obtained at the market information booth.

           

Persons requiring special accommodations to participate in the market are asked to notify the museum staff when filling out an application.

           

Fullerton Market is sponsored by the Fullerton Parks and Recreation Department.
