VACAVILLE — Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center will launch a new farmers market beginning next week.

Fresh fruit, vegetables, hot and cold foods, and flowers will be offered at the hospital from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday.

A grand opening celebration is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Visitors can shop and sip flavored spa water while listening to live music from Reggae City Band.

The first 500 attendees Tuesday will get a Kaiser Permanente grocery bag. The farmers market will be located near the front entrance to the hospital. The public is welcome. Vendors will accept cash, credit/debit cards and EBT cards.

Kaiser Permanente has more than 50 farmers markets at its medical centers across the country.

    I avoid any vendor who does not post prices at farmers markets. The reason is the state board of weights and measures found that the largest complaint they get is against farmers market vendors who do not post prices to charge different people different prices based on their own personal prejudice.
