Farmers Markets on Saturday Christmas Eve?

Does anyone have experience in going to the farmers market--any of them--on Christmas Eve? Are they open? Is anyone there?

  1. Taken from the SFC Farmers Market newsletter update I get on Wednesdays:

    Special Wednesday Holiday Market
    Wednesday, Dec. 21st with loads of vendors

    Christmas Eve falls on Saturday, December 24th this year, so the SFC Farmers' Markets at Sunset Valley (SV) and Downtown (DT) will be combined in a smaller market at Sunset Valley, 3200 Jones Road. But to those that plan ahead (we still welcome you last minute at the Dec. 24 market at SV), we will have almost double the vendors at the Wednesday, December 21st Market at The Triangle to accommodate dozens of SV and DT farmers and other vendors in a special Holiday Market to get you all your goodies before the big rush. Hours 3 - 7 pm and free parking.

    Market Open Christmas Eve Day! Saturday, Dec. 24
    Only open at the SFC Farmers' Market at Sunset Valley, 9 am to 1 pm, with a limited amount of farmers and food vendors from both SV and DT. Lots of artisans, though, to fill out your last minute shopping list for those who were good! (Closed at Downtown location)
