Established in 1934, when a dozen local farmers parked their trucks on an open field (once a dairy farm) to sell fresh produce to local residents, the Market has remained true to its roots ever since. With nearly 100 dining, shopping and grocery opportunities, Farmers Market has something for everyone. More than seventy-five years later the Farmers Market remains the one stop shop for every visitor’s needs.

Fresh food, good people watching

The Farmers Market was well worth the trip. Sprinkled through the complex are several shops and food vendors. We causally walked the entire complex. We purchased fresh almond butter and beef jerky, both of which were delicious. We sat at the tables in food area and there was great people watching... read more

i had no idea what this was until we got there - an amazing collection of shops and restaurants on a historical location. Leave yourself plenty of time to browse around and bring your appetite. It is located in an are with lots of shopping and museums so you can make a full day of it.

We visited the farmers market as it was a pick up for our tour. We arrived early so we could have plenty of time to look around. Our first word of warning is the parking costs. It's $24 for the day unless you get your ticket validated by one of the stall holders inside but as we didn't really look... More

The farmers market has always been a fun place to go to relax, kill a few hours, and get something ultra casual to eat. Uou can still do that but be prepared for an over crowded very expensive experience. The prices for relatively fast food level are so high it's aggravating to eat it in sardine like surroundings

If you are interested in eating out or just picking up fresh fruit/veggies, the Farmer's Market at The Grove is a great choice. I most recently had the Indian food which was amazing. There are lots of different options from burgers to crepes to fried chicken. You can sit in or take out.

Whether you're looking posh, or buffet, you can't go wrong walking through FARMER'S MARKET , or the GROVE .. .. But, if you're looking for that quiet bargain, you have to check out the following .. .. ITALIAN? Walk over to MAGGIANOs and order from their classic selections and get another entree for free to take home .. .. AMERICAN?... More
