The Modesto Certified Farmers Market runs April through December each year. Support local farms, small neighborhood businesses and enjoy starting off the morning with a stroll down the Market's lane! Tons of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs and cheeses are peddled... Morning pastries, fresh bread, local honey and more fill the stalls... It's a foodie's paradise.
Saturday mornings at the Market typically include live musical entertainment and deliciously food demonstrations by local chefs or vendors. Check the calendar for more details.
The market will be opening even earlier this year: first, a ease into the season, only Saturdays in April, then the market will resume its regular Thursday & Saturday morning schedule the second week of May.
