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 in addition to the fresh fruit and vegetables one can eat dinner and listen to music.
My favorite stand for strawberries, tomatoes and other vegetables is Tomatero. Everything sold is organic. For fresh oranges I buy 10 pound bags every week from Paredez Farms.
There are other Farmer's Markets in Marin but the markets at the Civic Center are far and away the best.
We are living next door to the market in San Rafael. What a pleasure as a French speaking person who is used to markets in France to go over to our local farmers' market in San Rafael. So fresh vegetables, fruits and other veggan organic food . All grown in California. Very colourful flowers. Only seasonal food. Great ambiance specially on Sunday, with music and folklore.. Thursday is quieter, more conventional and less stands.
Worth the visit specially on Sundays, it's just under the Civic Center. Only negative point: a little bit expensive but worth the extra penny.
Marin Farmers Market is always a big hit with our guests..We have been regulars for over 30 years and even planned our work hours around it...Variety is super, fresh veggies and fruit, fish, bakery items incl breads, sauces and spreads and wonderful foods to eat there or take away. Plus there is always a nice assortment of crafts for sale, an all around good time..Tho the best months are June - Sept for fresh fruits and veggies, our guests have even been enthusiastic going in Feb.
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.
