The Market is a vibrant gathering place where visitors can learn about healthy food choices, and overall health and well-being. 

Auburn parks are smoke-free. This includes Les Gove Park where the Farmers Market is held. If the product emits smoke, or vapor, or contains tobacco, it is prohibited in Auburn Parks per Auburn City Code Chapter 2.22 (PDF).
