A community that feels like my own family. Run by the Ecology Center, an incredible local resource with a lot of integrity and high standards for the sustainability and quality of produce and food sold. The freshest, juiciest, yummiest, organic and GE-free food available. Open year round rain or shine, and now zero waste, too! The Berkeley Farmers' Market is the center of the local food community: it works with the local school district, local restaurants, and lots of other community organizations that focus on food security and food justice. I love it!!!

Right now it's all about the Blue Moon organic blackberries at the Thursday market. In early spring it's about fava beans and artichokes at all three. In the winter it's the sweetish bitter greens. 9 months of the year there are various varieties of avocados. Little gems are a lettuce I can actually get excited about. Oh--mustn't forget Lucero strawberries. Not only are they juicy & sweet but they also taste like strawberries! Yeah, I'm told farmers' markets environmentally sound, and a visit to one is an instant antidepressant, but I wouldn't be going down to Derby Street today if it weren't for the peaches. I support the Berkeley Farmers' Markets because I like good food.

Most of the food is organic, the markets are small and friendly but have great selection, the food is beautiful, I run into people I know, and it benefits the Ecology Center, which is a great organization. It's the best of what a community should be.

They do a wonderful job at organizing the markets providing local produce and a safe enviorment. Also they do a great job educating patrons about the variety of items found at the market that are sometimes overlooked.

I love the fact these farmers have come from out of town to provide us an opportunity to select their home grown products, which they have transported to our back doors. I enjoy seeing their pride in selling their products to us, an exchange of human warmth in an outdoor market..

I travel by BART to come to Berkeley Farmers' Market for the many organic products not available at my local market. I'm encouraged by my physician to eat organic foods as much as possible, and there they are, in Berkeley! Also, it's a fun place.
