News from the farmers market

Due to the recent oil spill in San Francisco Bay, crab season has been postponed until Dec. 1 or later so fresh local crab will not be available at the Danville Farmers Market tomorrow. Northbay Quality Seafood, the market's long-time fish vendor, will continue to offer a supply of fresh salmon, halibut and various other fishes and shellfish during this waiting period.

Farmers market manager Max Timms wants to thank all the customers for supporting Loaves and Fishes of Contra Costa year round by donating food and money to the cause at the market.

"Their support helps provide hot meals each weekday for over 800 people who are living below the poverty line in Contra Costa County," he said.

Kids Holiday Fun will take place at the Danville Farmers Market on Saturday, Dec. 8. Children can make a tree ornament to take home as well as a holiday activity book and a candy cane. Also a drawing will be held for a big poinsettia. Homemade wreaths will be available for sale.
