  • A favorite of the locals. However, we prefer the Sunday Farmers Market on California Avenue. The Sunday market offers a better variety of vendors for produce and other products. It also provides food....  more »
  • Not only was the food, (both prepared and to be prepared) so delicious, but we found a vendor selling Japanese vegetables, and even the special plums for making ume boshi, which we had never seen at.....  more »
  • A bustling Saturday morning crowd accented by colorful produce booths and street performer music. I really enjoyed this little market and appreciated the selection of vegetables available—green onions, cilantro, fresh garlic, & so much more. Rambling from booth to booth, tasting samples of fresh peach slices on one end to flavorful dipping sauces on the other (“Roti Pakistani Authentic Food”). Great way to start the day.
  • I spent like $400 here each week. The food tastes much better than grocery stores. Look for stuff without pesticides.
  • This small farmers' market offer a variety of vendors from all over the bay area. It's not as large as others, but over time you can easily form a connection with the friendly vendors who come back every year. There's usually a musical act that's hit or miss, depending on your musical taste. The vendors cover a wide mix: fresh fruits & veggies, flowers, honey, nuts, mushrooms, local meat, hot foods, knife sharpening, and more
  • What's there is good, but it's too small :(
  • This market has everything you could want... Beautiful produce, coffee, pastries, flowers and even a lavender tent with all things lavender.
