Savor the best of winter and then embrace the emerging bounty of spring at the Marin Farmers Markets. Apples, kiwis, mandarins, persimmons, pomegranates, and hard squashes give us cause to celebrate winter. Yet the arrival of asparagus, cherries, peas, rhubarb, spring onions, and strawberries couldn't be more anticipated. Farm-fresh eggs, grass-fed meats, farmstead cheeses, and freshly baked breads complete the shopping experience. Specialty prepared foods and handmade art add to the magic of the market. Discover San Rafael's best lunch venue and glean some inspiration from Bay Area chefs who loyally shop the Thursday Marin Farmers Market. Bring your family and friends to the Sunday Marin Farmers Market to experience the third largest farmers market in California. The markets take place rain or shine.
The Marin Farmers Markets are programs of Agricultural Institute of Marin, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, whose mission is to educate the public about the nutritional and economic benefits of buying locally grown food directly from farmers, and to connect and support communities and agriculture.
