This weekly Tuesday fete should not be missed. The fresh produce, food stands, art/crafts and all the vendors provide a great backdrop for the best part, the people. If you enjoy interacting with people or just people watching this is a great opportunity. There is a mix of downtown residents, people from other parts of the Peninsula, and a good dollop of tourists to top it off. I like hanging out with the guys from Liquid Books on the NE corner of Alvarado and Bonifacio. It's like a penny cup for books; need one take one, got one give one. Across the street are Republicans and folks that like Ron Paul. Now I'm a screaming liberal but have had the nicest chats with those folks as well. Get to know the real Monterey by rubbing elbows with the locals. Oh, and the local produce is some of the best in the world!
