Fullerton market farewell for the season

Families gathered and children lined up in their favorite superhero, princess, monsters and animal costumes to parade the downtown streets of Fullerton.

The last downtown Fullerton’s, Farmers Market of the year concluded with a special Halloween infused market on Thursday October 30.

Located in the downtown Plaza on Wilshire avenue, this free event brought the community together every Thursday since April 3 of this year.

The community of Fullerton cheerfully farewells the weekly market that offered local farm-fresh produce, flowers, fresh-baked breads, live entertainment, outdoor beer garden, arts and crafts, and activities for children.

Local vendors set up there tents every week to take part in the market, even vendors from as far up to San Diego like to set up in the local Market.

David Franco a flower vendor from San Diego has been coming to the Fullerton Market as much as he could throughout the years. Franco has been in the business for 23 years along with his family and mother in law whom started the business 45 years ago.

“it’s a good market to set shop up at, I enjoy the community and I like the music and the little train that circles the market,” Franco said.

For the Halloween festivities many families dressed in matching costumes aswell as vendors. Parents joined their children’s side for the costume parade and afterwards collected candy from the vendors.

A costume favorite was by Francis Aldana and his two year old twins , who dressed as characters from the Top Gun film, that started Tom Cruise as a Naval aviator aboard the USS Enterprise. Aldana enjoys coming to the market and was happy to be there with his family celebrating Halloween.

Live Music was provided by Bubba and the Big Bad Blues band who kept the audience dancing and lively the whole night.

The farmers market will be back next year to welcome new and favorite vendors.
