Downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market returns Saturday

Uploaded: May 7, 2014
Spring has sprung. The Downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market – a seasonal, volunteer-based market that only runs May through December – is opening this Saturday, May 10.

The market is in its 34th year ("We say we were in the farmers market business before it was cool to be in the farmers business," said Phil Carter, president emeritis of the market) and will offer much of the usual fresh produce and some prepared goods. It operates 8 a.m. to noon at Gilman Street and Hamilton Avenue.

Carter said he expects to have about 40 growers selling on opening day – "a lot of our old faithfuls" – and a few additional prepared food vendors in an expanded area on the opposite side od Gilman Street, which was added last year.

The market lost a successful grassfed-beef vendor who "grew out" of the market a few years ago, but a new beef slinger has been brought on board for this season.

"We're bringing beef back this year," Carter said.
