The air was on the chilly side, but the enthusiasm was high Thursday as the farmers market returned to downtown Newhall following its winter hiatus.

Vendor Anush Vartanian, of Pacoima, was selling hummus, said she thought attendance was fine for the first day back, although she joked that she was freezing.

The temperature was 54 degrees in Newhall an hour after the market opened at 4 p.m.

Newhall resident Jeannie Rutherford, who was looking over produce with her 5-year-old daughter Peyton, said she was glad to have the market back again.

“It’s the same vendors every week, so it’s nice seeing them every week,” said Rutherford, a market regular.

Co-hosted by the city of Santa Clarita, the market moved down the street from its previous location to a new site on Main Street between Market and 8th streets.

The Farmers Market will be held every Thursday evening from 4 to 8 p.m. this season. It offers produce, specialty items, handmade crafts, family-friendly activities and entertainment.

The event Thursday night coordinated with Art Walk, which was located on Main Street between 6th and 9th streets.

The Art Walk features works by local and regional artists, live entertainment and gourmet food trucks, as well as art galleries displaying paintings, drawings and photographs.

Art Walk is hosted every first Thursday of the month spring through fall from 4 to 8 p.m.

Later this month, the city will host Senses in downtown Newhall with a “Luck o’ the Irish”-themed block party March 15.

Senses is hosted every third Thursday from 7 to 11 p.m. and features live music and entertainment, food trucks and activities.
