"Ethnic" farmers markets?

Ruth Lafler | Jan 22, 2008 08:46 AM

Another post reminded me that the selection of produce varies a lot at different markets -- some of the less chi-chi markets have a much wider selection of Asian produce (most notably the Old Oakland Farmers' market), and there must be some that have more Latin American specialities as well.

Any tips on markets that are less focused on heirloom/organic produce and more on "ethnic" specialties? Alemany would be one, I think, but that's a bit of a trek from the East Bay.
