Clovis Farmer's Market Friday Nights

This summer every Friday night from 5:30 to 9pm, you can enjoy the Old Town Clovis Farmer's Market and support local farmers, vendors, and causes. The farmer's market will last until September 28th. The farmer's market stretches from Third to Bullard on Pollasky.

If you want fresh cherries, this year's crop is going to last about one week shorter and  be about a dollar more expensive this year according to the Fresno Bee. So this Friday and the next are probably the only weekends you will be able to get cherries. I'm very sad to hear that Mountain Brooks Ranch will not be doing the U-Pick this year due to the short season. Read HERE for the Bee article about cherries.
