Outdoor Markets in Menifee Highlight Local Craftsmanship, Artistry, and Makers

Menifee prides itself with the ingenuity and creativity that are spurred from its local and mom and pop business owners, and the City is excited about the addition of two new private outdoor markets to join the Menifee community, aimed at bringing new and fun shopping options to Menifee. The Sun City Farmers Market and Menifee Trading Post Night Market both include a variety of local mom and pop vendors, and micro/small/cottage businesses aim at providing new shopping choices for local and regional residents and visitors.

“These fun marketplace opportunities provide our local micro/cottage and small businesses with accessible ways to sell their goods offline at family-friendly events for our residents and visitors to enjoy local products and food,” said Menifee Mayor Bill Zimmerman.

The “Sun City Farmers Market” is a morning farmers market run that is the perfect addition to your Saturday routine. Operating every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Sun City Civic Association (26850 Sun City Blvd.), the new farmers market is one that is growing and always looking for new vendors to help provide healthy eating options and produce for all to enjoy. There is always something new and exciting at this market, with fresh options such as home-baked treats, handcrafted goods, healthy pet food and goods, delicious canned jams, Argentina empanadas, fresh organic fruit and vegetables, and more!
