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.

Taking a planned detour at San Rafael to see the Civic Center, we happened upon the Marin Farmer's Market. What a joy to experience the best of the Bay Area's local foods. We were able to purchase fresh fruit, cheese and bread. Had we been locals, we'd have taken advantage of the fresh seafood. Visiting early on a Sunday, what... More

Every Thursday and Sunday Marin county is fortunate enough to have a fantastic Farmer's Market. I try never to miss it. The Thursday market (8:30 am - 1 pm) is smaller than the market on Sunday but many of the same vendors go to both markets. On Thursday evening the market moves to downtown San Rafael on 4th St. where... More

Wonderful Farmers Market...at the Civic Center. Bypass the spring to fall 4th Street "Farmers Market" which is nothing more than a low end flea market.
