One of the best Farmer's Markets around.

Lots of great, high quaility vendors. It's a great place for foodies! They have so much to choose from and you will go back for favorites time and time again.

Great variety of food and drink - the lemon/mint iced tea from the Greek food truck is awesome. Musicians playing to watch and listen to and of course plenty of fresh fruit, veg, cheese, meats etc to explore.

The Marin Civic Center Farmers Market in San Rafael is one of the best in the county. If you go every week the vendors become friends and you can find the most delicious produce as well as meat, eggs, and nuts direct from the grower. There is live music, fresh flowers and cooked foods if you need a little snack.... More

Wonderful produce, both organic and just local; locavore cheeses, sustainably and humanely-raised meats and lots of fish, breads and pastries galore, and the full gamut of ready-made food for munching--plus music in two venues and clothing & jewelry. There are very pricey items, but one can also find some good deals...discernment is required. It seems to be a family weekend... More

The Sunday morning farmers market in San Rafael at Civic Center is the best in the Bay Area. There are rows and rows of fruit and vegetable venders, a wonder selection of prepared food to eat on the spot or take home and a great craft section. There are several areas musical performers as well. My favorite fish market is... More

There are too many strollers, kids and "service dogs". The produce is unusual and fresh but on the pricey side. I try to avoid the market except when I need my knives sharpened.

Tiny, overpriced, loud with children's performances. Parking is horrible! The only thing great is the view.

Not only is it a fine farmer's market, but there is a huge variety of places to eat freshly prepared foods of all types. There are bouncy attractions and for the kids on Thursdays and Sundays.
