CASTRO VALLEY -- The Castro Valley Farmers Market is going year-round.

In the past, the market had shut down at the end of October and reopened in May.

"This year, we brought in food trucks, and I think the trucks brought in enough business to keep the market going all year," said Bob Swanson, a liaison in Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley's office. "We're getting people who didn't come to the farmers market before."

The market, with about 40 vendors, is held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays in the Castro Valley BART parking lot. To celebrate, the market will have a harvest theme this Saturday. A bounce house will be set up, and there will be Halloween costume competitions at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., with prizes awarded.
