Close to the Bay Area, Turlock is a diverse farming and small business community. Locals love the small-town vibes of Turlock, while still being in close proximity (2-hour drive) to large cities for shopping, the beach, and mountains. Due to the demographics of the area, a variety of cuisine is available at restaurants throughout town, and our sprawling downtown area is known to host a large Farmers Market each weekend from May-October that attracts vendors far and wide.
