    Located in Santa Clara at The Sheraton Sunnyvale Hotel 1100 North Matilda Ave. from 11am to $pm free admission and free parking. Should be a fun event with lots of vendors. We can carpool if needed or meet there. Im looking forward to this and hopefully you are too. This will be our feb club gathering and January is still in the works

    As far as I know, there is no plan for us to set up a vendor table, but we will have a spot at the entrance to the event to allow people to sign up to become members.

    No we are not selling things. Just spreading the gospel of BAR. And of course buying things.

    We need to spread the word far and wide. Lets make this a yearly event. They sold out of space for vendors quickly now we need to make the vendors want to come back and tell their friends to get this to be a yearly GO TO event for vendors and buyers alike..

    Larger event than this prob not going to happen in the Bay Area without a good supporting cast. I've been rallying potential sponsors for possible future event in the Bay Area the size of MACNA or RAP for few months now and I am very interested in working with BAR on this. If BAR is interested in moving forward and take the baton from here, or with me, I would love getting together with a POC from the club to discuss the details.

    I'm excited about this event and like that BAR can help give it more exposure, but other than putting it up on the forum and talking about it what else can we do? The only people I know that are serious enough about reefing to attend, are the people on here. Is there something else that you have in mind? It will take the slot for our monthly event for February so hopefully that will help get a few more people there.

    We should also make use of the BAR fb page, and publicize the event there too.

The first Silicon Valley Coral Farmers Market SM event will occur on February 11th Saturday 11-5 pm. The location is the Sheraton Sunnyvale Hotel at 1100 North Matilda Ave. in Sunnyvale California. This SV-CFM event will be hosted by Steve Tyree. We are currently Sold Out of vendor booths and have assembled a great group of vendors. We are accepting vendors for our standby cancellation list. For vendor inquiries contact coralfarmersmarket@gmail.com.
