Farmers Market Morphs Into An Old Town Social

Market1The weekly Farmers Markets in Old Town Newhall looked a bit different Thursday evening. Notably, it was swarming with people.  

Booked alongside the First Thursday Art Walk and a row of gourmet food trucks, the City of Santa Clarita hopes this Farmers Market 2.0, so to speak, will catch on.

“The vision we all anticipated is here,” said Bobbi Jean Bell, owner of OutWest Marketing, located on Main Street.   Several Main Street businesses participated in the Art Walk on Thursday night, featuring live music and the work of local artists inside their stores.  

The impressionistic, oil-on-canvas landscapes of Patty O’Hearn and the vivid outdoor wildlife paintings of Lisa Barr lined the hallway of the Canyon Theatre Guild; Newhall Bicycle Co. displayed the cycling photography of Mel Carll; a program of folk, Spanish and soft rock tunes filled El Trocadero Mesquite Steakhouse.

“To get folks to come down and see us here – it’s just wonderful,” said Bell.  

At one point, Bell’s store was elbow-to-elbow with patrons marveling at its charming Western wares, from authentic cowboy garb to literature on outlaws and dude ranches.  

Situated toward the front, local singer/songwriter John Bergstrom played soothing odes to the Old West, a few set in the Santa Clarita Valley.  

“That song was about Tiburcio Vazquez, famous for Vazquez Rocks,” said Bergstrom. “He was a ladies man, which got him into trouble.”  

Bergstrom marveled at the threshold to the store as people either darted by in fits of chatter or poured in through the door.  

“This is neat because it brings out the people,” he said. “It hopefully will help revitalize the whole area.”  

Pulchella Winery, the new kid on the block, was overwhelmed by the response. A thousand scents filled the room as patrons enjoyed portions from the nine food trucks along with Pulchella wine. Barbecue beef sandwiches, boats of sushi and garlic fries adorned the bar, high-tops and arm chairs.  

According to Rolling Bistros, which provided the food trucks, Thursday’s farmers market drew 3,200 people.  

The City of Santa Clarita’s Farmers Market and Art Walk takes place every first Thursday of the month.
