We had a wonderful time at the Farmer's Market, scoring some great produce and eating tasty food along the way. It was easy to get there and well worth it as there were many vendors of all kinds: produce, honey, flowers, crafts, gadgets, home goods, clothes. The hours were convenient and we were close to other attractions once we were done walking the vendors. The atmosphere was enjoyable with several different musicians serenading us as we shopped and ate.

This should be one of the must see's while in Monterey. You can get an inexpensive dinner as well as dessert at one of the many vendors while strolling and soaking up the local atmosphere. The street market is open on Tuesdays from 4-8. You can walk to it from one of the many hotels and motels. The vendors sell all types of cuisines, flowers, fruits, vegetables, baked goods and crafts.

This is a local "Farmer's Market" in Monterey, right on the Main Street. Cars are not allowed, and you can walk the entire area for local stuff...

Old Monterey's farmers market is held Tuesday, late afternoon. There are a few produce stands but they are greatly outnumbered by people selling scarves, hats, jewelry, etc. There are food vendors. It can all easily be perused in 30 minutes. By all means, drop by if staying nearby but there isn't much to it. (If San Luis Obispo's Farmers Market is a 10 food/family fun, Monterey's is about a 3... sorry.)

We were pleasantly surprised to find this little market on our quick stop into Monterey. We just wanted a quick snack before continuing down route 1. We wound up staying longer than expected. They had so many good foods to try along with a free wine tasting. We had just come from Napa Valley where all the samplings were expensive so this was a nice surprise to find free tastings. We wound up buying more of their local wine than we did in Napa Valley.

Definitely worth a trip if you're in town Tuesdays 4-7. A long block's worth of produce and food vendors, plus another block with craft vendors. Great variety.

I can't believe I never wrote this up before. We try to make sure that a trip to the Monterey Peninsula involves a Tuesday just to come to this farmers' market (we come to M. 1X or 2X/yr). Crafts and cooked food vendors as well but the main event is the farmers. It's fun and a large number of folks turn out each and every week. You can't even believe the lines at the roast chicken stand or some of the other prepared food vendors. It's a great pleasure to see so many people out in the street enjoying the evening in Monterey and appreciating the farmers (some of whom come from quite a distance). Two items worth mentioning: 1. Parking is extremely easy and extremely cheap in the city garage(s) that are right next to the market--couldn't be more convenient; 2. While dogs are not allowed in the street (which is the market area) they are allowed to be walked on the sidewalk on either side of the street (so the backside of the vendors).

Out of town visiting Monterey area for business, I just got settled in for the evening and decided to go for a drive when I stumbled upon this lovely Farmer's Market. I had no idea it was even going on. So I pulled over to go for a stroll in the cool evening air. I enjoyed freshly made falafel as I admired the flowers, jewelry and candies. This was the largest Farmer's Market I had been to. There was live music, a few hohum tables and quiet a few very interesting tables. I did not spend too much time in the fruit and veggie stands. But I did so enjoy the many talents and goodies that were available. Wonderful location along all the shops and popular restaurants. Near the park and just off the Fisherman's Warf. Perfect for family, shopping, or just hanging out. Go!! It is totally worth your time. Oh, and the chocolate covered apples and homemade pastas are irresistible : )

Generally just a fun scene on Tuesdays-go for a few excellent baked goods, lots of fresh vegetables and fruit and some decent live music. The veggies and fruit can be a little on the pricy side, but certainly no worse than Whole Foods. If you poke around a little, there is some competition on pricing as well, and at least the dollars are going to be spent closer to the farmer, and a lot higher quality than the mainline supermarkets. The doodads (toys, jewelry etc ) tend to be of varying quality so we skip that part. And when you have finished, you can pop into any number of good coffee houses for a drink.
