Farmer's Market Update

The Sierra Madre’s Farmers Market hours have changed beginning 9/06/2012 to 3:00-7:00pm every Wednesday throughout the fall and winter months. The farmers market is a great opportunity to come on down and meet the farmer directly. Dry Dock Fish has fresh and delicious wild caught varieties of fish. Rustic Loaf has your artisanal breads baked fresh that same day and brought to the market. Cutie Pie that has pies made with the fruits of our organic farmers, make sure you pick one or two up for desert. There are so many unique and amazing finds at the farmers market.
