Atherton Family Faire and Farmers Market


Residents Learn About New Civic Center

Families with children and dogs in tow, and adults of all ages clearly enjoyed Atherton’s “Family Faire & Farmers’ Market” Sunday. Hundreds turned out to enjoy the festivities, sponsored by Atherton Now, the non-profit fundraising arm for the new Atherton Civic Center.

Lunch and iced concoctions were a welcome relief from the record noon-day heat. The lively DJ music, and attractions for the kids were an energetic backdrop to neighbors meeting neighbors–some for the first time.

The farmers’ market vendors with fresh produce and seafood, cut flowers, elegant bakery items and even oysters were all but sold out and “very pleased” with their first experience in Atherton.

Architectural drawings of the new civic center were on view, and tours were given by the Town to highlight the need for new facilities. This Atherton community event was graciously underwritten by an Atherton family, and coordinated by Melissa Badger of Design Corner Inc. Photos courtesy of Nicole Scarborough Photography.
