Out of town visiting Monterey area for business, I just got settled in for the evening and decided to go for a drive when I stumbled upon this lovely Farmer's Market. I had no idea it was even going on. So I pulled over to go for a stroll in the cool evening air. I enjoyed freshly made falafel as... More

We stopped in Monterey for lunch during a road trip down the coast. When we finished eating, we walked out of the restaurant and they had shut the street down for the farmer's market. So many vendors had free samples of fruit, and many claimed that they had been picked less than an hour ago. We tried some of the... More

I would definitely recommend this for all travelers. Good, fresh fruits and veg. Some Cooked food too. There is an Indian stall in the end, across the pinkberry. they serve some good spicy food. If not buy you can try samples at all stalls. I would happily buy directly from farmers and they can answer any questions. It's good for... More

Generally just a fun scene on Tuesdays-go for a few excellent baked goods, lots of fresh vegetables and fruit and some decent live music. The veggies and fruit can be a little on the pricy side, but certainly no worse than Whole Foods. If you poke around a little, there is some competition on pricing as well, and at least... More

Someone recommended this so I had to go. Food galore so you won't go away hungry. Fresh fruit and vegetables everywhere you look. Tried a few samples. I loved the pecans from Jeffrey's Best. He gave me a card and I'm ordering some online tonight. We had already eaten dinner so we didn't have room for much. Loved the music... More

I used to live in Monterey and loved going to the Farmers Market on Tuesdays and Thursdays downtown. I had the opportunity to go back and visit and it is just the same as I remember. Wonderful food, fresh fruit and vegetables and lots of vendors with local unique art and jewelry to choose from.

This is a well supported Farmers' Market in the heart of Monterey. It's well worth visiting to experience local atmosphere, and mingle with the locals. The produce generally appears to be of excellent quality. Well worth visiting!

We go to this market almost every week. The Indian food cart is really good and always has samples so you can try the different dishes they serve. We buy a lot of our produce here. Almost everything we have bought is better than what you can buy at the grocery store. The prices are fair for what you get.... More

TUESDAY NIGHT ON ALVARADO Still one of the best farmers' markets I've even seen. I live in Florida now and there in nothing even remotely comparable down here. All the fruits & veggies here are GMO from industrial farms. So I am always very happy to be in Monterey on a Tuesday!

Being out of town, I didn't go to buy but to take pictures. Such visual stimulation for the camera with all the different colors of fruits, vegetables and flowers....worth a LOOK.
