I discovered another year round farmers market in Marin. It's at the Marin Country Mart -- what used to be Larkspur Landing -- apparently kicked off a Farmers' Market at the end of 2010.

It's a much smaller market in comparison with one at the Civic Center, but it was very sweet and not too crowded. Apparently they hand select all the farmers/sellers who are there.

A good seasonal veg selection (I understand they prefer organics, but I saw some nonorganic things too) and I bought some great sustainable textile shopping bags and fresh juice. An interesting mix, and some sellers I hadn't seen before. A found it a happy discovery. Has anyone else been there?

    it was pouring rain when i went. all the food vendors were huddled in a tent at the end of the row of vendors. impressed with the handcrafted yogurt and the organic apple juice.

        I went to this farmers market over the weekend, and I really enjoyed it. I bought some extremely fresh organic produce, a piece of fresh pie, and cheese. I also bought a homemade spicy ketchup. All delicious. Oh...and I had a freshly extracted veggie juice.

        I like this FM because it isn't huge and its in a nice location.

          Thanks for the report. I've been meaning to check it out. Did you happen to notice any of the names of the Farmers?
