BargainView By Monica Barber

To Market, to market to buy Mom a gift! May certainly has a lot to offer in the way of things to do, but perhaps the most important of all is spending time with your Mom. There’s nothing worse than running short on cash when you want to treat your favorite lady to a great time on the town. Here are a few places in Modesto that are walking distance from Downtown and enjoyable for you and yours.

Grab a bit of fresh produce with your morning coffee at the Modesto Certified Farmer’s Market. The Market has been a celebrated community treasure in Modesto for over 30 years. Saturday May 10th hosts a special celebration devoted to Mother’s Day. From 9am-Noon decorate and gift wrap cupcakes while you enjoy entertainment. Farmer’s Market is open Every Thursday & Saturday 7 am-1 pm.<>

One of the best and brightest locally owned places to eat in the Modesto Area is Green’s Market. Since opening in 2011, Green’s has quickly expanded to multiple locations including Green’s on Tenth. On Tenth offers organic lunch and dinner options that include vegan and gluten free items. Additionally Green’s boasts one of the best burgers in town for a great price. Experience their full coffee bar with private label coffee blend and fresh bakery items daily. Stop in for a bite. On Tenth is open for dinner Thursday-Saturday’s 5-9pm.<>

That spring redecorating tradition of yours is a blessing . There’s nothing like an eclectic antique to add a bit of style to an interior or give as a great gift to Mom. A bit of the new never gets old when you mix it with the past. Certainly your Mom and your interior will thank you when you stop by Crow Trading Co. for a unique piece of flair. Crow Trading plays host to a new artist every 3rd Thursday of the month for the Modesto Art Walk. Make sure you drop by!<>

Taking in a film is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with your family. Make sure you visit The State Theater in the month of May to experience the ambiance and character of Independent film, Art-house cinema and Vintage classics. Sunday May 18th, the Modesto Film Society hosts a screening of the classic film Roman Holiday pairing Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn in her Oscar winning role.

May your month of May be a celebration of joy for those in your life and easy on your finances. Make it a special month and enjoy!
