One of the perks to having my office in downtown Oxnard is being able to walk to and enjoy an ongoing tradition of Farmers' Market every Thursday anytime between 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. in Downtown. Faithfully every week the local vendors have their fruit and vegetable stands  up and ready by 9 am and stay a little passed 2pm. During the lunch hour, great music and food is enjoyed while the Karaoke DJ livens up the market with music and singing. Sometimes there are special guest musicians that play for a few hours and showcase their talents. This is a free open-air community market located in the beautiful Plaza Park at 5th Street and B Street in Downtown Oxnard CA. You will find delightful and fresh local produce and other prepared items such as bread, dried fruits, and kettle-cooked popcorn and more.

There are chairs and tables provided for guest every week.This is a fantastic place to bring the kids and spend a few moments relaxing.  The kids will enjoy the jolly jump and balloon artist. Lastly, every Thursday all guest are welcomed to participate in the Free Noon-Time Raffle.
