Farmer’s Market

The Toyota Hybrid Farm to Table Tour concluded on Sunday October 25 starting at 9am. “Taking place at the Brentwood California Certified Farmers Market, Toyota created the Farm to Table Tour to highlight farmers markets around the country and the benefits they offer their communities, and to celebrate the food produced by each market’s farmers and vendors. Oh and to help promote their hybrid vehicles too, obviously.”

“During the event, in booths throughout the market, local chefs and farmers will be paired together for a day that highlights the Market’s offerings. The chefs will prepare special tastings showcasing their partner farm’s fresh ingredients and visitors will have the opportunity to sample the chefs’ creations while also learning more about the market vendors, their products, and how to buy and eat seasonally. The chefs will be serving up samples from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.”

“The market is located one block west of Bundy at 741 S. Gretna Green Way. Test drive a Prius or Highlander Hybrid and take home a John Boos cutting board as a thank you gift.”

 

In any case we went. Didn’t test drive the Prius or Hybrid so no John Boos cuttting board. (The Steeler game started at 10 am so this was a very fast Farmer’s Market experience!)
