Join us the Food Bank for this Free Farmer’s Market that will provide fresh, nutritious produce to El Dorado County residents who are currently in need of emergency food assistance. This outreach is a collaborative effort between the Food Bank of El Dorado County and California Emergency Foodlink of Sacramento.
