Castro Valley, like many towns throughout the Bay Area, has a weekly farmer’s market. Our farmer’s market happens on Saturdays between 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the North Eastern corner of the BART parking lot from May 18th to October 26th. What I like most about CV’s farmer’s market besides the freshness and supporting farmers directly are the prices. I’ve found our market to be one of the better deals, and especially when you compare it to some of the better known markets like SF’s Ferry Building. Granted, you’re not necessarily going to find lobster mushrooms or truffles, but you are going to get great deals on the seasonal bounties at half the price.
However, the reason I’m writing this post is not just to remind you that the Farmer’s Market is returning, but to let you know that our farmer’s market is going to pick it up a notch and start adding food trucks to the weekly event. Food trucks are a destination on their own, so I’m confident this will boost attendance and enhance the market as a whole. Food trucks have become a part of Bay Area culture, and now you will have a chance to enjoy the experience locally and on a regular basis.
Enjoy the new addition to our Farmer’s market and I hope to see you there!
