Sun Sets on Farmers Market for the Season

Today marks the end of the annual run, so stop by one more time.

The Novato Farmers Market wraps up its annual five-month run on Tuesday, so mingle one last time and pick out some tasty treats between 4 p.m. and sunset.

The market, under the direction of new manager Emmett Brady, debuted in May and ran every Tuesday afternoon/evening along Grant Avenue in Old Town. It features artisanal foods from Marin and produce from all over the greater Bay Area and Central Valley.

Visitors can also stop one more time at booths set up for the UC Extension Marin Master Gardeners, the Novato Downtown Business Association, the City of Novato Parks & Recreation Department, the downtown Novato Theater renovation group and team that sells the city's commemorative bricks that can be customized and placed on the steps of Novato City Hall.

Here's a tip: If you want to try out another local farmers market when the Novato one is closed for the season, try the Marin Civic Center farmers market in San Rafael. It is is open Thursdays and Sundays from 8 a.m to 1 p.m. 

Remember, parking can be tricky on farmers market days. If you're willing to park a few blocks away and walk, this can be a low-stress, high-satisfaction outing!
