Downtown Placerville’s new SOL Community Farmers Market is hosting its first Summer Solstice Festival on Sunday, June 22 from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Wilkinson-Hupcey parking lot, 681 Main St. in Placerville.

Celebrate the season’s harvest at the market that will run until Nov. 30 on Sundays from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Bring the family out to enjoy the weather and support local farmers, artisans, merchants and non-profits.

Visitors can stock up on fresh fruit, make jam with the kids and check out all the activities at the market.

Mama Earth Farm will have summer vegetables, local honey will be available, Penrod Farms will have fresh locally-raised rabbit meat and other vendors will have herbs, spices and teas, homemade granola, olive oil and more.

A nice selection of locally handmade jewelry and crafts, Native American arts and crafts, food samples, food vendors, seed give-aways, face painting and live music will be part of the festivities.

The El Dorado Chapter of the California Native Plant Society and Woodsong Herbs will have kids’ activities. Smokey Bear and United States Forest Service Placerville District Fire Truck will be at the celebration.

Classic cars are welcome to add to the shine.
