Summer Crowds Packing Lafayette Farmers Market

With a new location and plenty of vendors, the Lamorinda community embraces the new Sunday farmers market

The Lafayette Farmers Market was in full swing Sunday, as the market settled in to its new location.

After a move from the Lafayette Plaza to the south BART parking lot, the farmers market seems to be doing very well. The market is run by Urban Village Farmers’ Market Association and sponsored by Sustainable Lafayette.

“There’s been a very favorable response from the community,” said Market Manager Josh Assink of Urban Village Farmers’ Market Association. “Everyone feels an improvement over the last market in Lafayette.”

According to Assink, the market is the biggest farmers market in the county, with 60 to 65 vendors coming out each Sunday.

Pamela Hallorn of Lafayette said she thought the market was great, and she enjoyed the new location.

The new location seemed to be a big plus for many shoppers, and people were happy with the wide variety of vendors selling fresh produce, flowers and art. The prepared food was also popular, with a long line for crepes and lots of shoppers walking around with fresh-baked pizza. Other food sold at the market included Andy & Cindy Thai Cuisine, Blue Bottle Coffee and pastries from Feel Good Bakery.

Lafayette resident Theresea Markert said she enjoyed the variety of vendors, and was glad they had changed the day from Thursday to Sunday.

The Lafayette Farmers Market is every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the south BART parking lot.

“It’s just going to get better with time,” said Assink.

We went over the weekend and it was fun. Good selection of veggies and all very fresh. Some nice flowers and breads and even those crepes. It was fun and well run.
