Orange Farmers Market – Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Years of work by local nonprofit Orange Home Grown culminated with the spring 2011 opening of Old Towne Orange Farmers and Artisans Market. At the historic Villa Park Orchards packing house owned by Chapman University (corner of Cypress and Palm), its carefully vetted vendor list takes a page from the famous Santa Monica market. Orange-area chefs demo every week, and you’ll likely see them shopping, too. Ample free parking in a nearby lot or on the street.
