I went to the NEW Location for the Hayward Farmers Market. It's at 777 B St, the Hayward City Hall Plaza area. Watkins & B Street. I took Bart there and it's just 1 block away from Downtown Hayward Bart Station.
Since I got there early I was able to walk around without many people around. I was looking for the FREE tote bag for the first 50 people. Since I couldn't find it I went back to the Information Booth and they were just starting to give them away. I was about the 10th person. They made you fill out your name, address, & email to get one. It's a nice, strong, canvas farmers market bag that says "Hayward Farmers Market" and they usually sell it for $12!
They also had a cherry tasting from 4 farmers that were there selling cherries. I liked Hamada Farms, Kingsburg
Cherries: $3/lb or 2lb/$5
I also got:
Bee Pollen from Joe's Honey, from Hayward $8 small bear of it
Quail eggs from Olivera Egg Ranch $1.25 a pack
