On the first Saturday of each month, a Farmers Market is held at Rancho Mission Viejo at the Pavilion (2 Tierno Road) from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Ladera Rancho Chamber of Commerce. Farmers, craft producers, food trucks and craft vendors sell locally produced foods and other items, according to the Chamber.

Some of the selections sold by the more than 40 vendors include wild-caught seafood; vegan dairy, eggs and butter; Bouquets of flowers; pasta and pies; Hummus; local honey; treats for pets; and works of art, photographs and accessories.

“Products are grown locally using sustainable methods to reduce climate impact – much of it is organic,” the Chamber’s event description said. “Small specialty producers make their products locally using only the highest quality ingredients.”

The event is open to the public and playtime for children is available inside the Pavilion Gym during the event. Live music is sometimes also featured.

The next upcoming Farmer’s Market will be on July 2. Follow the Farmer’s Market on The Ranch page on Instagram for updates and more information.
