Fresno’s own Casa de Fruta

simonian.jpegThis is an interesting story from today’s business section of The Bee. Simonian Farms is adding on to its fruit stand with an antique-filled old town that takes you on a historical journey from the 1850s to 1960s.

The owner describes the new digs as “a fusion of Casa de Fruta on the Pacheco Pass Highway, local cheese operation Bravo Farms in Traver and a day at Disneyland”

The story describes the town this way:

Lining the streets of the “old town” is a church, a barber shop, a Route 66 shooting range, a school house, a fruit stand, a saloon and a 1950s-era gas station.

You can get a better feel by looking at this gallery from Bee photographer Mark Crosse.

The grand opening is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at 2629 S. Clovis Ave., Fresno. Details: (559) 237-2294
