Second Modesto farmers market to return

A second downtown farmers market will return Saturday, giving shoppers two options to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables.

The new market will open in front of the Gallo Center for the Arts at 7:30 a.m. The traditional Modesto Certified Farmers Market will open on 16th Street between H and I streets.

Both were open on May 15, but the new market did not get a city permit to return until earlier this month.
