Fresh produce and a festive atmosphere are calling people to the farmers market in Burbank, which last month celebrated its 27th year of bringing farmers to town each week.
Sarah Dornbos, manager of the market held Saturdays behind Burbank City Hall, said she has a years-long list of farmers who want to get in. While other farmers markets offer everything from kettle corn to custom jewelry, the Burbank market focuses on produce and allows few non-farm stalls among its 34 vendors.
"You are coming to see farmers and meet the people who grow your food," Dornbos said. "That connection is important."
A handful of farmers have been coming to the Burbank market for more than 20 years, including Tamai Growers of Oxnard, Tenerelli Orchards of Littlerock, and Mike and Sons Egg Ranches in Ontario.
