It will be owned and operated by Verge Hagopian, a former teacher at Mission Viejo High School. He’s driven by an interest in healthy eating, and as such, the 40-60 vendors participating will only be offering healthy food. If you get thirsty while you’re there and want a soda, for-getta-boud it. Hagopian says soda is unhealthy and you won’t find it sold there.
The farmer’s market will start in January 2012, every Friday morning next to the Mission Viejo Library. The exact hours haven’t been announced yet, but I’ll post it here later.
