Need recommendations for the Sunday San Rafael Farmers Market

I went for the first time in a long time last Sunday and there were a lot of vendors I was unfamiliar with. So, who and what do you like?

Are there any produce vendors who stand out?

I don't believe I've tried Arrowsmith Farms.

I wasn't going home so I couldn't take advantage of meat and cheese vendors. I did like the taste of Bodega Aritsan Cheese.

How are Clucky Plucky chickens (Barrett Farms)? How are the eggs? The chickens are frozen which she said was necessary for health regulations. I wonder why Hoffman was able to sell unfrozen poultry so many years at Ferry Plaza.

I finally got to try Robert Lambert marmelade which the Napa Whole Foods in Napa. They are not inexpensive so I didn't want to commit for an unknown. However, I'd buy some of the unique flavors. He had some lovely preserved lemons Has anyone tried those?

I thought Just Like Grandma's jams were nice. She collects heirloom jam and jelly recipes and then makes them.

I also had plans to eat elsewhere. How is the organic dim sum stand?

I was glad to see Alive raw vegan cuisine. I wanted to try the SF restaurant, but given the category and location, it wasn't the highest on my list. This is more accesible. What's good there.

I know someone does great reports from time to time on this market, but I'm not finding them in search. Anyway, I think the last report was a while ago.

I didn't really have time to look at the whole market and just mainly did the perimiters. What else should I look for?
