A taste of culture

Saturday morning is a great time in Union City to visit with farmers at the Alvarado Farmer's Market. Certified fruits and vegetables, direct from the farm taste sweeter and fresher. During the summer months, buyers not only have the pleasure of an open air plethora of produce but can enjoy some great music as well. Now in its 10th year the Union City concert series has some great bands lined up for your listening pleasure.
