FarmersMarketSaturday

Generally rated The Best in the East Bay, the Grand Lake Farmers Market is a Saturday morning institution.

The Grand Lake Market had humble beginnings circa 1998 in the parking lot under Highway 580. The opening of the new Splash Pad Park in 2003 provided the ideal setting for an event that quickly evolved into a Saturday morning institution that’s helped make the adjacent Grand Lake commercial district an even more vibrant shopping and dining destination.

Visitors will typically find live entertainment, a kid’s bounce house and nearly 100 vendors offering produce, prepared foods and arts and crafts. Year-round hours are 9 AM to 2 PM. We recommend AC Transit, walking or biking but a limited amount of metered parking is generally available in the parking lot under the freeway for $2 per hour.

This is one of seven markets managed by the Agricultural Institute of Marin–a non-profit agency enabling growers to sell certified, farm-fresh produce directly to consumers. The Grand Lake Market manager, Chris Blackburn, can be generally found in the Information Booth at the Saturday market. Alternatively, phone 800 897-FARM or email chris@agriculturalinstitute.org.

Applications for vendors and entertainers are available on the AIM website.
