Great food, fruits and vegetables. Fun entertainment and lots of arts and crafts. A real gem and a very healthy alternative to the processed junk food you get from fast food restaurants.

If you are looking for great quality, organic produce then look no further!! You will find it all here!! I personally like the Thursday morning farmers market because it's less crowded. Don't go if you're in a rush because there is so much to see and sample.

Maybe it was because it's January, or I was there at opening, or because I'm traveling without access to a kitchen, or because I grew up in the US heartland...In any case, while this is a very nice market, I'm surprised it's reported as one of the best in California. There are lots of prepared foods - you could easily... More

Choices abound here no matter the season! Fresh produce, great breads and bagels, beautiful flowers, fresh fish, talented artisans too selling crafts! We are fortunate to go every Sunday...closed Christmas and New Years...

I'm a fan of the Thursday FM rather than Sunday. On Thursday there are fewer food trucks and one gets a more serious cook's crowd. Super fish person who gets some of the best salmon, sometimes from Washington state when local is out of season. Their local fish is super, too. Many different organic growers with an incredible selection. It... More

This is the best market in Marin year around! If you want to be healthy then eat seasonally and what you find at the Farmers market is in season. Plus you can ge to know your farmer. A bit expensive but worth it in my book! This is my Sunday spiritual and I've been going for many years

If you have never been to this farmers market, don't miss it! Along with all the fresh produce and tastings there is prepared food as well. Sunday is the big market and it is huge and packed! Fun to see everyone with their carts. On Thursday it is smaller but still an excellent market. Once you start shopping here you... More

One of the best places to buy your food in Marin County, including meat, fish, produce, and baked goods, and support local artists selling wonderful art work and crafts they have made. There is music and places to rest while you eat from one of the food vendors. Organic or not, free of pesticides? Ask the vendor. Most food is... More

The Marin County farmer's market at civic center on Sundays is not to be missed. Seasonal fruits & vegetables along with tantalizing food stands offering wonderful Thai, Italian and Spanish dishes from breakfast to dinner make this market rich with color & flavors. It's one of the reasons to live in Marin.

Whether you stick to the healthy organic veggies, or get swept away in the offerings of cheeses, breads, pastries, those darn tasty tamales, fresh dim sum, roasted chicken, paella, or if you must, freshly "harvested" (isn't that the PC word for it?) pasture-raised meats, it's all abundantly here. Make it your brunch spot on a gorgeous day, it delivers on... More
