The Los Altos Farmer’s Market returns to State Street with the finest just picked local fruits and vegetables. You can find this wonderful community event between Second & Fourth Streets in Downtown Los Altos every Thursday, May 7th to September 24th, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm.The Market is now being managed by Urban Village, so you’re getting mostly organic food directly from the farmer and that’s good for the earth and good for you and good for the farmer. Parking can be found in nearby parking lots, parallel to the farmers market, behind the stores.

Opening day for the Farmer’s Market was great. Returning this year were several fresh flower vendors providing the best cut and potted flowers and plants. There were many fruit and veggie vendors with terrific displays, and fresh meat and fish vendors were quickly selling their items. Most vendors had umbrellas or shade tents, which was a good thing as the weather was wonderfully warm long into the evening.

A band played to the dancing feet of toddlers and small children while others dined on delicious, fresh and made-from-scratch Mexican food. Several restaurants opened for indoor or outdoor dining along with those set up temporarily on the street. Two new restaurants were debuting and a new martial arts school was also in attendance.

There are more food options here than at the morning markets in nearby cities. More importantly, it’s a great place to pick up dinner. The Farmer’s Market has rotisserie chicken, corn on the cob, baked potatoes, and exotic cuisine among other delicious items. Additionally, a local restaurant can be found selling their goodies … make sure you get lots of napkins. Of course, if you need to pick up something not found at the Farmer’s Market, Safeway can be found at the end of the street.

At the end of the day, it was great to have all of the happy people, reconnect with friends, and enjoy a beautiful evening. Clearly, the Los Altos Farmer’s Market gets better each year. We recommend partaking in this wonderful tradition.
