    If you wanna buy some fresh, organic vegetables and fruits then you should visit Hillcrest Farmers Market. There are plenty of vendors with lots of things. Don't forget to have a great coffee there!!!

    Wow? About as big as a swap meet with organic produce and vegan food products. Incredible cheese! Coffee. Healthy plant based creams and cosmetics. Many hot and cold food places and samples to die for

    Looking for a bulk buy deal? Start shopping at 1:30 PM. Look for vendors with produce left ask for a bulk buy best price. They don't want to take it home, so 50% off is complete reasonable.

    The vendors in this farmers market are bonafide organic farmers. I also like the food stalls that cater fresh food and very uniquely prepared.

    Quite simply, the best farmer's market in town. The specialty peach/necatarine growers carry the sweetest fruit I've ever tasted. Try The Cravory, and the Bitchin Sauce!

    The delicious coconut pancakes (5 for a $1) are by far the best deal for a sweet treat in the market. Find them at the Black Thai booth.

    Even though it's close to a 100 degrees, this place is still so refreshing. And ofcourse you have fruits, juices, lemonades and ice-cold tender coconut water to keep you cool!

    Shop around and don't necessarily buy your fruit or flowers at the first stand. You can usually find the same items at another stand cheaper. Found a half flat of strawberries for $5 at 3rd stand.

    Wow, there's so much I love about this place. I've been going here for almost a decade now. My tip: try the freshly shucked oysters. SO GOOD. Refreshing. Great with lemon + hot sauce.

    Tem muitos produtos orgânicos. É uma feira livre sem gritaria do tipo "mulher bonita não paga, mas também não leva", pelo contrário, tem música ao vivo e uma limpeza impressionante.
