Treat yourself on Thursday night by going downtown for the farmers market. Fabulous BBQ, fresh veggies and you can eat your dinner while sitting on the curb. A real treat during wonderful weather.

Get the freshest items from local farmers while entertained on each corner and order a full meal at the same time. One of the country's oldest markets but always upgraded with new ideas. Spend your Thursday evening and get a wonderful experience.

Every Thursday night for decades, the downtown market takes place almost all year around. Music, produce and great food. The vendors usually have great deals if you are interested in buying their goods.

No other farmers market is as vibrant the one on Higuera street. Lots of activities and fun. Music and dance is in abundance. This is worth all the time. Go early to find a parking.

Thursday 6pm to 9pm. It's extremely popular, finding parking can be tough, better idea is to walk or use the trolley (50 cents per person)

We always stay at the Apple Farm. Approx. 15 minute walk, but there is also local transportation right along the street to take you to the market.
