I've heard other people trash Farmer's markets as having grocery store produce at mark up... All I can say is they have never been to this market. There are different vendors at the Thursday and Sunday Markets, and I have my favorites at each, but there is no where else to get the variety of farm to you produce, or... More

The Marin County Farmers Market is an enjoyable outing. Browse the many vendors for fruit, vegetables, fresh juices, flowers, jewelry, fish, meat, coffee, and more. Eat your meals there or buy fresh food to bring home and cook. Enjoy the music and people watching. Go by yourself, with a friend, or bring your family. If you haven't been there, you... More

We are lucky to live so close to the best Farmers Market around. The produce is excellent and fresh from the farm. It's a busy place so arrive early for the best selection. The farmers are great and lots of free samples. you can't go wrong.Visit it yourself you won't be disappointed.

The Marin County Farmer's Market is wonderful. Yes, it can be pricey, but there also are bargains to be had. The fresh fruits and veggies are a find, and the baked goods are delicious. There is nothing more delightful than a Sunday morning shopping for goodies. I love this place, and it's right in my own backyard!!

The Farmers' Market in Marin, Thursday and Sunday is one of the largest and diverse in the bay area. Thursday's market is less crowded. Shoppers and chefs can take their time on Thursday to concentrate on each vendor. The market draws the same vendors each week so you can quickly shop your favorites after awhile. Early in the year there... More

We are not overly traveled, but we've been to our fair share of farmer's markets around the country and even in Europe or other parts of North America. As nearly weekly visitors of this market, we still think it's the best. Tons of high quality organic produce created by real small farmers mixes with other tasty vendors from bread to... More

The Civic Center Farmer's Market is my favorite in the Northbay. There are some small ones in local communities but this one is centrally located in San Rafael and features a very large number of vendors. I actually think that the Sunday market is larger than the SF Ferry Building Farmers market. The Thursday market is fun but not as... More
