Our Market has a Home!

We finally have a location for the Farmers' Market! The Divine Savior Church has accepted our proposal, and we are in the process of finalizing the paperwork with them. The market would run every Saturday from 9 AM. We will have the opening on Halloween day (October 31st).

We are now in the process of gathering farmers/vendors for the market. Andrea and Monsi are visiting the Redlands/Homestead area this Friday to speak to a couple of potential vendors.

We need some help from you: Please spread the word around about the market and urge people to take the survey. The survey actually helps us forecast the demand and encourages the farmers/vendors to come to Doral. Also, let us know if you have any friends, or friends' of friends who would like to sell their products* at the market.

Honey, vegetables, fruits, nuts, culinary and medicinal herbs, cut flowers, food and herb production plant stock, etc.

  1. Hi! I just found this blog, and I am happy to see the Doral market is finally taking shape. I realize this post is much older than my comment, but I wanted to add my two cents. It would make so much sense to have the location by the trolley route. I see you already have a secure location, but I really wish this would be considered.
