The locals love this place. They were out in force. Not much for a tourist other than to have coffee, by some flowers for your hosts and some cupcakes to have later in the day. But this place is not aimed at tourists and that is why the locals love it.

The market on thurs, and sundays are two of the best that I have ever been to, you can find just about any fresh fruit or vegetables that you want. Along with that are many fine pre made foods and fresh breads.

The Marin County Farmer's Market is held on Thursday and Sunday mornings.I like to go on Thursday morning because it's smaller, less hectic and a couple of my favorite vendors - Full Belly Farm and Della Fatorria Bakery - are only there on Thursday. We buy fresh milk and other dairy products from Strauss Creamery and meat from Prather Ranch.... More

Seriously. When traveling and reading in the guide book that there's a farmers market, I'm always hoping to find this one again! It's wonderful and full of all the fresh culinary ingredients that make people want to live or visit California. There are plenty of food vendors & a petting zoo sort of area for entertaining young ones. I walked... More

The San Rafael Farmers Market is truly amazing. So many local farmers and prepared food vendors offering beautiful fresh fruits and vegetables, cheese, olive oil, prepared foods, baked goods and more. There are many food vendors offering everything from barbecue to Belgian Waffles. Try it, you will be delighted!

Thursday & Sundays. Wide diversity of certified organic farm produce, including sea food, meats and the participation of many local artisans, with the usual truck food set up and kiddie rides. Something for any member of the family. Can't wait to see them in their permanent home with even better facilities for the crowds they draw.

It's a fun thing to do, and there's lots of great things to buy. A bit on the expensive side, so take a lot of cash.
