This past Tuesday, the City of Imperial held their second Farmer’s Market event .  The event ran from 4:00 pm through 8:00 pm and featured a plethora of vendor booths, attractions and entertainment.   People of all ages and families of all sizes were invited to partake in the festivities, there was something for everyone.
The main entertainment consisted of Greg and Michelle Tribado, two singers and entertainers from Brawley. They made sure the crowd was up and dancing as they sang various country/western songs, they even sang a couple of duets such as Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s “I need you.”
What’s become a common attraction these days, for anyone who frequents the mall, is that little train that can. The train made an appearance at the Farmer’s Market; it was driven by Suzy Roveva. The little train gave people of all ages a tour of the Farmer’s Market as it snaked its way through booths and people.
The Chamber of Commerce set up shop at the event,  “It takes about an hour, for us to get the tents up and get the wares out and everybody is here usually right on time,” explained Sharon Concord. Any vendors wanting to get in on the action for December 17 are invited to contact the Chamber of Commerce. “Please come out, get your Christmas pies and buy your Christmas gifts, It’s a great opportunity to get your Christmas shopping started, and have a good time at the same time,”  smiled Concord.
