Last night marked the inaugural of the Second and Last Saturday Farmers' Market at Thomas Plaza, in the heart of Pomona's Art Colony, sponsored by the DPOA (Downtown Pomona Owner's Association). With little fanfare or marketing, the event was a success! Over 700 people attended the family friendly event featuring organic and certified farmers. Crafters, food vendors and Downtown merchants took part as well.
Many of the vendors and farmers from the Wednesday night market participated. The market offered live entertainment, this night featured American Jazz. Just the right mood for the evening.
Several local "dignitaries" visited...among them were Cathy, Jerry, and Victor Tessier. David Allen from the Daily Bulletin (oh, by the way David will be a chili cook-off judge this coming Saturday at the dba256). Also seen at the market were Council members Rodriguez, Atchley, Saunders, Lantz, and somebody told me Danielle Soto was there. Good thing they all showed up separately, we don't want any violations of the Brown Act.
The DPOA would like to thank everyone who came. We hope you had a good time and will come again. The next Saturday night market will be January 31, 5PM to 9PM. We'll have live music, this time from the 50's and 60's (not the performers, just the music), and a car show. So come on out, support the Downtown, and have some fun connecting with friends, family and neighbors.
