About 50 vendors line Mill Street with food, gifts

A happy crowd of outdoor shoppers strolled Mill Street Thursday evening during the first certified farmers market of the season in downtown Grass Valley.

“Everybody was enjoying themselves. Every vendor seemed to do quite well,” said Howard Levine, the executive director of the Grass Valley Downtown Association.

About 50 food, produce and other vendors lined Mill Street as bluegrass performers played live music on a stage set up in front of the Del Oro Theatre. Several stores stayed open later and others moved their wares onto the street.

“It gets bigger July 3. This is a small warmup,” Levine said.

Next month, the market will grow to encompass Main Street and dozens of arts and crafts vendors when it turns into the full Thursday Night Marketplace and Street Festival.

This marks the second year the market has switched from Friday to Thursday.
