Fan Favorite Artichoke Festival Farmers Market

Some claim this to be the “crown jewel” of the Artichoke Festival! Where else can you shop for the best locally grown, hand harvested fresh vegetables at amazingly low prices? The farmer’s market includes: artichokes in a variety of sizes, lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, onions, berries, peaches, apricots, plums, and so much more. The “fruits” of all the fields that you drive by in our wonderful agriculture-centric region are here.

Open Saturday & Sunday in the Salinas Room.

Festival guests can learn about the food they eat from farm to table, with local growers and producers at our Meet the Grower interactive exhibit. This crash course in artichoke husbandry by Castroville’s artichoke growing experts will be held in the Farmers Market, inside the Salinas Room 11am-9pm on Saturday, and 11am-6pm on Sunday.

Don’t leave without some great fresh produce and artichokes to take home from our farmer’s market!
