Farmer’s Market a howling success!

It’s fair to say the first day of the New Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market – May 20 – was a big hit.

Customers flocked to the market located in and around Newtopia Cyder, 10045 Carroll Canyon Road. A fun and light atmosphere was shared by all as attendees shopped, dined and enjoyed live music. It was a pleasant culmination of months of preparation for this free, weekly, live event – the only one of its kind in Scripps Ranch.

This community lost its farmer’s market in 2018 when the original Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market closed because its site was slated for redevelopment.

Judging by the turnout, this community sorely missed its own farmer’s market. Scores of customers continued to descend upon the venue from blocks away as the opening day continued.

The New Scripps Ranch Farmer’s Market will be held each Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. at 10045 Carroll Canyon Road.
