    Sunny Saturday: pick up your pastured eggs and craft ferments, then settle in on the splash pad with a Roli Roti and watch the Bicycle Coffee bros pack up and ride away. No frmrs mkt in SF competes.

    Great for the whole family. Bounce houses for the kids, and very good produce and meat selections. Excellent location. If there is a knock against it: the food stalls are just okay save for Roli Roti

    A great farmer's market to purchase your fresh organic produce and raw nuts and seeds...look for all natural nut paste and salad dressings. Perfect shopping during your Dherbs FULL BODY CLEANSE.

    If you're not an early riser, this place is very much alive until closing (unlike most farmers markets that are picked-over and dead by noon).

    Best farmers market in the East Bay: Shoppers can browse fruits, vegetables, baked goods, meats and fish, flowers, and much more. Parking can be brutal but it’s so worth it. Read more

    The kettle pop is so so today. Not crispy and fresh. They do have free samples but saw so many people bee line to it and get a handful and leave. Probably not good for business.

    Go early for the Prather ranch folks, go late for the half price last half hour at county line produce. Also, the Thai guy's red snapper is to die for.
