What began in the city of Riverbank almost two months ago, the Downtown Market, will be winding down to the end of its eight-week run next Tuesday, June 28.

A variety of fresh foods, along with some prepared items, are available for purchase from participating vendors. Other booths feature clothing, jewelry, art work and beverages for sale. There is even a taco truck available for the late afternoon-early evening market crowd.

Also each week, there’s some sort of musical entertainment for patrons to enjoy. Last week, it was singer/guitarist Jaimie Byous, playing songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s and beyond. At times, there have also been bands playing, or a DJ spinning the tunes.

The market is hosted on Santa Fe Street, between Third and Fourth streets, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The final event of the season is scheduled for June 28.

Downtown Market patrons get ready for some tasty goodies for a booth operated by the Central Valley Community Resources organization. They offer a wide-ranging menu and pour their profits back into activities that benefit the residents of the Riverbank area. - photo by Ric McGinnis
