The Route 1 Farmers' Market in Vandenberg Village kicked off National Farmers' Market Week on Sunday.

Vendors offered fresh produce and artisan crafts, and a Feed My Seoul food truck cooked fresh Korean barbecue for guests at the market.

Attendees celebrated with live music from Lompoc guitarist, Jacob Cole.

Per local and state health guidelines, farmers' markets are considered essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic. To keep guests and vendors safe, event organizers required everyone to wear masks and practice social distancing, which some attendees did not mind.

"What I like about the market even now is that people are social distancing, everyone is wearing masks and you can get out and see people who live in the neighborhood that you can't see because of stay-at-home orders," said Jamie Wilde of Lompoc.

Vanessa Catalan with Julia's Juice Bar in Grover Beach says she looks forward to the farmers' market every Sunday.

"Everybody comes out and supports us, which makes us feel like it's worth it to get up, wake up, come out and drive over here," said Catalan. "We love coming out here and seeing the same faces every single day."

The Route 1 Farmers' Market is held every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 3745 Constellation Road in Vandenberg Village.
