Friday Farmer’s Market at Clovis CA

It was after a week stay in Las Vegas that I went along with my friend and host to visit her place in Fresno, CA. As there was not much attraction to see in Fresno, she took me to visit the nearby city of Clovis where there was a Farmer’s Market happening on a Friday night.

During my holiday in the US in 2009, I had the opportunity to come this side of California and got very much interested to visit a winery. I have seen vineyards in Europe but never been to a winery yet, so this one has really made me so excited. We found first V. Sattui Winery where we entered […]
