Palo Alto JCCgets a farmers market

Starting on Friday, May 2, community residents and members of the Oshman Family JCC will be able to shop at a weekly, certified farmers market at the OFJCC in Palo Alto. About 20 fresh food and produce stands will be open from 1 to 6 p.m., and food trucks are slated to be on hand from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., organizers said.

“Anyone in the neighborhood can just pop in at lunch, on their way home from work, after exercising in our fitness center or after picking up their kids from school,” said Katie Chapin, OFJCC’s event coordinator, “and grab what they need and go.”

The market is being run in partnership with the West Coast Farmers Market Association. In addition, the OFJCC Café on the Square will be offering a 10 percent discount on food purchases on Fridays, organizers noted.

The market will be held in the Jessica Lynn Saal Town Square at the OFJCC, 3921 Fabian Way, Palo Alto. For more information, call (650) 223-8700 or visit — j. staff
