A trip to the local Farmers Market is among the highlights of my weekend. I love the beautiful display of food, getting to know the local farmers, enjoying artisan food and sipping on a delicious cup of fresh roasted coffee. By purchasing your food from a farmer’s market you can ensure you are enjoying the freshest foods of the season. That translates to more variety and a better source of nutrients.
This list is by no means comprehensive, but it is a compilation of some of the weekend farmer’s markets in the Bay Area that are offered year round. There are also weekday markets so be sure to look into where you might be able to pick up the best of the season near your work or neighborhood.
