On Thursday, June 3, the new Ojai Community Farmers Market brought residents and vendors together for a true community gathering. Sellers ranged from farmers and butchers to soap and gelato makers. Large trees provided shade while grass made for a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the scene. Live music and pizza cooked over a fire added to the festive ambience.
