The Farmers' Market in Martinez has turned historic Main Street into a destination spot on Sunday mornings May through October. Local producers with their bounty of fresh, seasonal, locally grown produce as well as a generous offering of baked goods, preserves and other treats is the main attraction here. Special events such as cooking demonstrations, tastings, and children's activities add to the festive atmosphere. Recipes, information on nutrition and sustainable agriculture are always available. Once the shopping is finished, families and friends often linger on the plaza to enjoy the music making this weekly event "the place to be"!
