The Dublin Farmers' Market will return to beautiful Emerald Glen Park on Thursday, April 17. The Market will run from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM every Thursday through September 25.
Once again, the City of Dublin is partnering with the Pacific Coast Farmers' Association to bring you the freshest in California-grown produce, as well as delicious baked goods, hot foods, and more. The Market will feature some new producers this year, as well as returning favorites!
In addition to having a wonderful selection of fruits and vegetables, the Dublin Farmers' Market features weekly special events, including musical performances, wine and beer tastings, cooking demonstrations, cook-offs, and children's games and activities. We'll also feature the second year of Dublin Idol,
where young singers can compete to see who are the best performers in town.
Our weekly themes this year include:
(First Week of the Month): The "First Thursday" events will include musical performances, in addition to beer and wine tastings from local breweries and vintners. On Thursday, September 4, we'll have a large staged concert in the park, featuring "Foreverland,"
a 14-piece musical tribute to Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five.
(Second Week of the Month): This night will feature cooking demonstrations, taste tests, and cook-offs, where residents can show off their talents in the preparation of a variety of foods, such as chili, pulled pork, ribs, and pasta sauce.
(Third and Fifth Week of the Month): This night will provide local groups with an opportunity to showcase their talents, and offer up information about their organizations. The Market will also feature entertainment from local musical, theatrical, and dance groups. The Fallon Middle School Jazz Band
will perform at our Opening Night on April 17, and "Dublin Idol"
will return to the Market during our "Community Nights" on May 15 and 29.
(Fourth Week of the Month): Designed to give families an opportunity to spend more time together, this night will feature games and activities for the kids, including face painting, balloon twisting with Crackers the Clown, crafts, and a host of fun shows and exhibits. The Valley Children's Mobile Museum will also be open every
Thursday, offering hands-on activities, in addition to their "Traveling Missions" exhibit.
Other highlights of the Dublin Farmers' Market include a Volunteer Fair
on Thursday, May 1, where local non-profits will be given the opportunity to connect with residents interested in volunteerism; and Bike to the Market Day
on May 15, when market-goers who ride a bicycle to the Market will receive "Carrot Cash" to spend at the various booths.
