Tehachapi Farmers’ Market
Main Street Tehachapi's Farmers’ market has moved around over the years. It has grown and evolved. This year's Farmers’ Market moved to Railroad Park on Tehachapi Boulevard which meant everything about the market had to be revisited. What exactly was important to our Farmers’ Market? It is always difficult to take an event that has grown and move it to a smaller place unable to accommodate that growth. Priorities were set. We recognized exactly what a Farmers’ Market is. We wanted the atmosphere to have shade with grass instead of hot concrete and blaring sun; a place where the community could come together and enjoy the breeze and trees. In most communities Farmers’ Markets are a place to buy fresh, wholesome farm-fresh produce brought in by local area farmers. Farmers’ Markets generally offer a variety of vendors with agriculturally related products like flowers, nuts, olives, breads, oils, goat milk soaps, etc. this community loves having local musicians for entertainment and RR Park has a fantastic central stage which makes this possible. And, if you are going to sit down and enjoy some music, you might was well enjoy something good to eat with a refreshing drink. We have a great community of artisans in Tehachapi, so offering some handmade and made in America jewelry and crafts is fitting of offer. So that is what we offer at our Farmer’s Market. Being nominated for the Best Family Attraction validates those decisions. Thank you, we are glad we made the right decisions.
