Clayton’s unofficial summer began on May 10 when Vice-mayor Dave Shuey tossed out the first cabbage to open the season’s Saturday morning Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market. Although still early in the year, there were peaches and apricots along with plenty of vegetables. The market opens every Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon. Visit Clayton Farmers’ Market on Facebook for recipes and special deals.
Susan Sappington clearly scored big at the Clayton Valley Garden Club’s plant sale held in the Endeavor Hall parking lot. The annual event raises funds for the Clayton museum garden project, the rose library’s rose gardens and flower beds, Daffodil Hill and garden projects at local schools.
On Saturday night, the California Beach Boys kicked off the first Summer Concert in The Grove. Picnic blankets were everywhere and it was hard to sit still when the band cranked up “Surfin’ USA.” Clayton’s Norma Galan kicked it up with the sax player during the closing number. Next up on May 24 is rock out time with The Boys of Summer Eagles Tribute Band. Stake out your picnic area after 4 p.m. Concert begins at 6 p.m.
