Contra Costa's biggest market, with close to 80 vendors, is the best place to shop in downtown Walnut Creek and definitely one of three markets in northern California worth a stop, according to Sunset.
The Lemon Lady is very excited about the news, considering she's a regular at this and our other East Bay suburban markets. She meets and greets all the friendly farmers who generously hand over to her boxes and boxes of unsold produce, which she shares with local food pantries, including the Salvation Army and the Share Food Pantry.
And here is what Sunset says about Walnut Creek's Sunday market: "In the East Bay From knife sharpening and music to barbecue and snow cones, the Walnut Creek market ― Contra Costa's biggest, with close to 80 vendors ― supplements summer fruits and vegetables with plenty to do. Bought more than you can carry? Drop off your produce at the Veggie Valet table while you fetch your car. 8–1 Sun (9–1 Nov–Apr); N. Locust St. between Giamona St. and Lacassie Ave.; cccfm.org.
Thanks, Anna, for letting us know about this praise for our local farmers market, and for the wonderful generosity of your farming friends. And, thanks, for your ongoing one-woman (one-toddler) campaign to fight hunger in our community!
