    Comments from a visitor on March 27, 2011: "Have not been to this Farmer's Market, but I work nearby and always see it in the East parking of what used to be the "Orange Mall" which is now called the "Village of Orange" or something like that. Don't know payment options, just know the day of week and hours."
