Definitely worth a trip when in Marin County vicinity. We took a local bus from downtown San Rafael, which served as our base for hiking Point Reyes. As far we can tell, every purveyor except for raw seafood and vegetables offered samples. Take them up...More

I usually go to the Thursday market. It’s less crowded than Sunday so you have more opportunities to talk to the vendors about their products. I love that the Marin Farmers Market has a good mix of produce, other products and prepared food. It is...More

If you evaluate Farmer's markets based on size and depth of products and services, this one has to be close or at the top. Very large on Sundays with lots of parking available. Not much to guess about as they seem to have everything you...More

Most people go to the Marin Farmer's Market on Sunday. That's the BIG market. However, the "chef's market" is on Thursday. It's quite amazing - a lot smaller, but you'll be rubbing elbows with chefs who come from San Francisco because this is THE best...More

I've been going to the Sunday Marin County Farmers' market for the past 20 years. THere's an amazing variety of local producers--farmers, growers, bakers, fishermen, local food artisans and craftspeople. There has to be close to 100 in all. There's a really nice vibe to...More

The Marin Farmers Market is a great place to buy produce of course, but it is a fun experience to shop outdoors, listen to music and run into friends or make new ones.
