Farmer’s Market presents Spring Fling

The Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market and Family Festival will feature a special Spring Fling event on March 28. 

For starters, visitors will enter the market through an inflatable archway at the Carroll Canyon entrance to the kid-friendly celebration. Children will receive a small gift as soon as they enter.

“We’ll be giving out eggs with treats inside for every child that comes through the market,” said Beverly Cassity, Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market manager. 

Inflatable bunnies will also be at the market, adding to the fun atmosphere. 

“There will be a caricature artist on-site doing caricature drawings of kids and whole families, if they choose to,” Cassity said. 

A special vendor for the occasion will be a gourmet Easter bakery, and the Farmer’s Market house deejay
will be playing holiday-themed tunes. 

“Many of the different vendors will have treats in their booth that they will be giving away to the kids, Cassity said. “They’ll have a lot of extra things for the kids that day.”

As always, Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market attendees will be able to enter Hunter’s of Hendrix coffee shop as well as Newtopia Cyder for adult refreshments.

Plans were still underway at press time, but Cassity was hoping to arrange for an inflatable slide, jumpie or obstacle course to place on the lawn in front of Newtopia for the children. She also arranged for a large Easter bunny to visit so children could have their photo taken with it. A possible drawing for prizes was also in the works. 

The Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market and Family Festival is held from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. each Thursday at 10045 Carroll Canyon Road. Parking is available at National University across Carroll Canyon Road, or Cabrillo Credit Union next to the market.
