Downtown Fresno Market on KernDowntown Fresno Market on KernThe Downtown Fresno Partnership's Market on the Mall has a new location on Kern Street where local growers will be selling their goods until October 31. Twenty-four vendors will offer fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts at the downtown Farmer's Market, which takes place on Kern Street between M and N streets every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There will be 22 market days this year featuring local produce for sale as well as live music. The market will be closed July 4.

Previously, the Market on the Mall, which is in partnership with the Fresno County Economic Opportunities Commission, was located on Mariposa Street.

With 40,000 employees in Downtown Fresno, PBID Partners of Downtown Fresno expect the new "Market on Kern" will be a signature event for the area and for the food industry.

Other farmer's markets in Fresno include the Vineyard Farmers Market at the northwest corner of Blackstone and Shaw avenues held every Wednesday and Saturday from January through December and the Garden Market at the Courthouse Park every Tuesday during the same period.
