Hundreds turned out last Saturday for a day of fun and shopping at New Leaf Community Markets in Pleasanton for its Purveyors Fair.
The festive event on the Vintage Hills Center parking lot in front of the store featured samples and tastings by more than 40 food and beverage vendors whose products are sold at New Leaf.
Also as part of the fair were wine tastings, artisanal food demonstrations, "old-timey" games and a bounce house and face painting for children. Live music was provided by the six-member rock and roll Max Cruise Band from Livermore.
"We held the event to thank the community for the warm welcome New Leaf has received, and introduce the producers of our products to them," said Mark McKinney, store manager.
New Leaf Markets is at 3550 Bernal Ave., at Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton. For more information about New Leaf, sign on to the grocer's website at www.newleaf.com/
