I love this farmers market because you can find any and everything you would need to make amazing food for you and your family. There is so much to offer and the quality is outstanding. This is the real deal if you want farm to table.

This is THE BEST Farmers Market I have EVER been to! What a treat to have the civic center market on Thursday and Sunday mornings and now the Thursday evening Farmers Market is back open on Fourth Street. Delicious ready food, amazing fresh produce, lots of organic choices, fresh fish and meats, artisan cheeses, bakeries and chocolatiers, local honey, flowers... More

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

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
