The Market at Delta College is a place where individuals can en- joy the weekend finding bargains.

Located on campus in the Budd 4 parking lot, the market is a great chance for Delta to provide its unused space on the weekends

It’s open Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We have a variety of vendors who sell antiques, foods like tacos, burritos, Chinese food, tamales, gyros and much more,” said market assistant Charles Fregoso.

Customers can buy a variety of products while supporting local vendors.

The market allows local vendors the chance to sell their goods within the community. It offers products such as fruits, vegetables, furniture, clothing items, electronics and more.

The market was previously best known as “The Delta College Flea Market” but it now has a new identity attracting a variety of people from families to those enjoying second hand shopping.

“There are a variety of items. I skim through and see what catches my eye,” said Delta student Brianna Adames.

There is a different reason behind every individual who roams the aisles of the market.

This month, the SALUD Outreach health fair will be at The Market on March 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Budd 3 parking lot.

The goal of the health fair is to raise health awareness within the Hispanic community. During the SALUD Out- reach event pharmacy students from University of the Pacific will offer free screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol and
diabetes.

These conditions are the leading causes of death within the Hispanic community, ac- cording to a Delta College news release.

“We are having the health fair again this weekend and the car show typically goes on in May or August. Both events help bring in more customers and all proceeds benefit the Passport to College Program,” said Fregoso.
