Main Street Farmers Market returns May 9 sponsored by Adventist Health
April 13, 2019
The 2019 Main Street Tehachapi Farmers Market in Downtown Tehachapi will run from May 9 to Aug. 15 this year, with the exception of the 4th of July, when there will be no market. Market hours will be from 4 to 7:30 p.m., with many of the past year's vendors returning.
Again this year, Adventist Health will be the major sponsor and will have a booth to do health screenings and provide health professionals to offer counseling and other services. Additional sponsors include The Loop Newspaper, Waste Management, Fiddler's Crossing and the City of Tehachapi. The sponsors make it possible for Main Street to bring the market to downtown each year.
This year's market will again be held on Green Street, with produce vendors on the west side of the street and the food, craft, art and other vendors on the east side. All vendor items must be handmade and there are still a few booths available to rent. Applications are available at the MST website, see the end of this article.
Each week, the entertainment will feature favorite local bands and musicians, organized by Fiddler's Crossing. Main Street Tehachapi Farmers Market is one of Tehachapi's favorite events, giving you an opportunity to stroll around downtown, visit the stores and see friends. Come out and stay awhile for a date night or bring the kids, listen to live music and enjoy food from the vendors. There is always plenty of fresh produce and baked goods and the Downtown restaurants will be open.
Main Street has a message for Tehachapi: "Join us on Green Street in beautiful, historic downtown Tehachapi for a fantastic assortment of food, handcrafted and unique items for sale, musical performances and friendly people. While you're downtown, please visit some of our local stores and restaurants. Come early or stay late. We look forward to seeing you at Farmers Market."
