Two special events coming up at Farmers Market


The Canyon Lake Farmers Market is known for its fresh fruits and vegetables as well as household, beauty and craft items. But that’s just a portion of what can be found there.

On Earth Day weekend, Sunday, April 19, Sally Smith and Renee Marier of Mango Pool & Spa Maintenance will have a booth promoting drowning prevention.

With so many water-related sports and activities in the community, this is a subject vital to Canyon Lakers. The booth will offer free coloring books and activity sheets for children, and a drawing for two life jackets: one infant and one child (30 to 50 pounds). Everyone is invited to stop by their booth for important information about drowning prevention.

Sally and Renee are members of the Menifee Valley Chapter of the non-profit Independent Pool & Spa Service Association.

The following weekend, Sunday, April 26, residents will have the opportunity to have their photo taken while holding a live parrot! Feathered Ambassadors from the Parrot People Rescue & Sanctuary of Murrieta will be at the Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

One of the ways that The Parrot People earn donations to help these gorgeous birds is to offer the opportunity for people to hold the parrots and have a photo taken, which they get to keep as a memento and in appreciation of their donation.

A full-color photograph with exotic birds just might make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for Mom or Grandma. The Parrot People have appeared at such events as the Temecula Valley Family Fair, the Temecula Reality Rally, and strolling through Old Town Murrieta and Temecula.

The Canyon Lake Farmers Market operates every Sunday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the upper section of the Town Center parking lot.
