Farmer's markets in January?
I will be flying to San Francisco in January and I'm interested in some of the area's farmer's markets. I'm less interested in fresh fruits and veggies and more interested in regionally-produced products like jams, honey, candies, cookies, canned products, etc. I'd really love some suggestions on where to go! I'm willing to travel to Berkeley, San Rafael, etc. Thank you!
SF Ferry Plaza, Saturday 8am-2pm
San Rafael Civic Center, Thursday & Sunday, 8am-1pm
Berkeley, Center & Milvia, Saturday, 10am-3pm
Berkeley, Derby & Milvia, Tuesday, 2-6pm
The Thursday markets in Berkeley and at SF Ferry Plaza are much smaller.
The Saturday Berkeley Farmers market seems to have the most of those regionally produced products you are seeking than the other two Berkeley markets.
There is also the Sunday Temescal Farmers Market at the Claremont DMV. Blue Chair has a stand there as does Blue Bottle Coffee, Vice Chocolate, Mariposa Barkery (Glutten Free bakery), Prather Ranch meats, .... Many of these vendors also show up at the Grand Lake Farmers Market.
During Janurary there are still some produce venders but they number is greatly reduced.

There's a new one to add to the list at the Marin Country Mart. It's in Larkspur across from the Ferry Terminal. And it's a year-round open 9-2 on Saturdays. I got some lovely jam from local Happy Girl Kitchen.
