I went to Berkeley Thursday Farmer Market after walking from Downtown Berkeley to the FM - it's about 1mi or so (15-20 min). It's from 3-7pm year-round on Shattuck & Rose near the CVS in North Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto.
They have lights so even though it gets dark earlier now you can still shop. That's GREAT!
Lots of Fall items now:
Frog Hollow Farms was selling their pastries for 1/2 off at 6:15pm. It depends if they have lots & trying to get rid of their stuff. I got a large chocolate cherry cookie $1 (reg. $2) and a bag of the cherry cookies for $2 (reg. $4 i guess). Galettes were on sale too.
Ici ice cream has a cart selling ice cream. That's very cool. I got a pumpkin ice cream sandwich on gingersnap cookies for $4.25. Ice cream was very mild, but cookies were good.
Hodo Soy Beanery was there. I can't wait to do their tour of their new facility in Dec!!
Organic Gravenstein Apple Cider - Looks good. Will get another time. Anyone try it?
Flacos - Unique vegetarian Mexican food. Will try another time. Anyone?
Saint Benoit Yogurt has a stand.
Hog Island Oyster Company was there
Highland Hills Farm - grassfed beef, lamb & goat. Didn't get anything, next time. Anything good?
Happy Boy Farms - certified organic produce. Didn't get anything, next time. Anything good?
OctoberFeast from SF has breads & pretzels ($2). Didn't get anything, next time. Anything good?
I hope to go back one day.
