Tomorrow begins the Summer Harvest Family Festival at the downtown El Cajon Farmer’s Market. It looks entertaining for the whole family and along with the vendors, there will be music, activities for children, animal ambassadors and much more.

Something new in the mix is the Farmer’s Market is a new non-profit project of the International Rescue Committee. Just a few quick facts, this is supposed to provide healthy choices for low-income families and now they accept EBT.

I don’t want to go too much into it, as I will be there tomorrow for the first day of the festival, to learn more about it and pass it along to you.

If you see me there, (white cowboy hat and a camera around my neck) stop me and talk to me and we can find out what’s happening in your part of town. Here are the dates for the festival that I received from the press release.

Hope to see you there!
