Hot Harvest Nights are no longer.

Since 2004, from May to December, the Hot Harvest Nights farmers’ market would set up every Thursday in downtown San Carlos, according to the San Mateo Daily Journal.

Hot Harvest Nights is being replaced by a year-round market on Sundays.

“I like having access to seasonal food year round. It brings the community together year round instead of just the summers,” said Katrina Van Draanen, a San Carlos resident.

Assistant Market Managers Nico and Dom Franchi get ready for the farmers' market.

The market featured fresh local fruits, vegetables, and other fresh items such as bread and baked goods. Live music is also played by local bands at Harrington Park in downtown San Carlos during the markets.

“Everyone comes down here. You get to meet a lot of new people, and you can’t get this fresh stuff at Safeway,” said Dom Franchi, the assistant market manager.

During the summertime, the farmers’ market is packed with people, some to get fresh fruit, and others to spend time with their families and enjoy the weather.

While some are excited about the year-round market, some market vendors have lost some business since the market date was changed to Sundays.

“It’s not as busy as it is on Thursdays. I feel like the old day was busier; people are doing other things [on Sundays],” said Mike Zarrow, a vendor from Medina Berry Farms who has been coming to the farmers’ market for 15 years.

Despite the fact that the market has less business of Sundays, vendors do see its benefits of a year-round market, even if the date has been changed.

“It’s not as busy as it is on Thursday, but as long as your product is good, people will start coming back to you,” said Zorrow.
