Second Market Season Opens in May

Fly Girl is back for her second season in Pescadero

Since the hugely successful launch of Pescadero Grown! Farmer’s Markets in Pescadero and La Honda last year, South Coast shoppers have come to expect certain special qualities from their meat and produce. Fresh? Picked today. Local? The farms and ranches are within striking distance of Pescadero and La Honda, from Tunitas Creek Road to the San Mateo County line and over to Skyline Drive.

This year’s farmers markets in Pescadero (opens on May 3rd) and La Honda (opens on May 8th) will feature vendors in Pescadero and in La Honda, with an abundance of leafy vegetables, beans, meat, chicken, cheese, and fish, as well as cupcakes and fudge. As summer blooms, so too will the seasonal fruit selection.

Both farmers’ markets will open much earlier this year – in early May rather than July, like last year – to optimize the season and give growers plenty of time to form a rapport with customers.

Puente, the market sponsor, is introducing changes in time and location as well.

Both markets will run from 3 to 7 p.m., to make it more convenient for local shoppers to drop by.

Finally, the Pescadero market will move across the street to 251 Stage Road, next to the Pescadero Country Store – where its bright displays and happy shoppers will be hard to miss.
