a great way to spend Sunday morning.

Tomatero farms has the best produce. Young and energetic staff. best carrots, kale, tomatoes and strawberries. Always a line - best proof people recognize the value.

Here is a wonderful market. Open air, with all the treasures of the garden. Along with cheeses, breads etc.

Excellent place for organic produce, sustainable seafood, humanely raised meats, dairy products, good food carts, entertainment. Some of the best farmers come to this market. Parking is generally not too bad.

This is a top-flight Farmer's Market, with year-round, all-weather service. The produce is of course fresh and delightful, seasonal and with great variety and it also excels in having a good selection of food trucks of various styles and ethnicities (the Fallafel truck and the Aidel's Sausages are two of my favs) and a great selection of baked goods, crafts,...

One of the biggest and best farmer's markets I've been to. Wonderful produce, meat, flowers, oils, honey...you name it. It is expensive for an outdoor market, however, and VERY crowded.

Fresh produce and helpful happy vendors. It was a great time. The apple juice vendor was a particular highlight, he brought his juice to market in a '52 Chevy truck and the olive oil tasting experience was great.

This traditional farmers market is huge and you can find everything, including crafts, honey, yummy fast food, coffee, plants and of course the freshest organic vegies ever. Bring lots of cash and reusable bags.

a lot to choose from but being in Marin, prices seem to be a bit on the high side. You don't get many markets twice a week!

There was lots to look at and plenty to taste. My son got his belly full on all the sampling. It was nice to see all the colors and life and smiling faces. That is what we enjoyed the most, seeing families and friends having a good time together.

Well, at least many reviews say so. This is where be buy most of our food. Fresh, local, high quality. And a fun destination for just being out among people, all doing something positive and life-enhancing. I am so grateful to have access to this kind of food and shopping experience.
