The city of Dana Point announced this week that the hours of operation for the Capo Beach Farmers Market, held on Wednesdays in the Doheny Village area of Capistrano Beach, will be expanded.
“The attendance has been low with the earlier hours,” said Cindy Nelson, the city’s economic development manager. “We think the later hours will attract more shoppers as they return to the city from school and work.”
The market hours, formerly 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will now be from noon to 6 p.m. The Capo Beach Farmers Market is located at the corner of Doheny Park Road and Domingo Avenue, next to Lucy’s El Patio restaurant.
Dana Point’s weekend farmers market will continue to be held on Saturdays at La Plaza Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with hours expanded to 2 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month to accommodate the addition of an arts and crafts fair.
