Fullerton, Ca -- Down home sounds will be heard throughout downtown Fullerton Thursday, April 25, when guitar virtuoso, Deke Dickerson and his rockabilly band "The Eccofonics" perform at the outdoor Fullerton Market.

The popular market, now in its 22nd year of operation, is open from 4-8:30 p.m., and offers farm-fresh produce, flowers, fresh-baked breads, arts and crafts, food vendors, and live entertainment.

The market also features a beer and wine garden for adults and a Kids' Korner, which offers special activities to keep children happy while their parents shop.

During warm weather, the Plaza's pop jet fountain provides a great cooling-off spot for youngsters who are welcome to wear their swim suits.

Admission to the market is free.

Dickerson is regarded as one of the most versatile guitarists around, and his repertoire mixes diverse musical genres, including country, rock and roll, doo-wop, and blues with his trademark rockabilly.

Dickerson's music has appeared in numerous movies and television programs, including the Oscar-winning "Sideways," and television's "Monster Garage."

Dickerson will perform from 6:30-8:30 p.m. 

Fullerton Market is located in the Downtown Plaza on Wilshire Avenue, between Harbor Boulevard and Pomona Avenue, adjacent to the Fullerton Museum Center.

Visitors to Fullerton Market will also be able to tour the award-winning Fullerton Museum Center, which offers a special reduced admission rate of $2 per person from 4-8 p.m. on market days, the first Thursday of every month.

Parking for Fullerton 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.

Further information about Fullerton Market may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545.

Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the market are asked to notify the museum staff prior to coming to the market.
