On Saturday, I hopped on the Light Rail to meet up with a friend at the farmers' market at San Pedro Square Market. Held every Saturday on West St. John Street (in between Almaden and San Pedro), the farmers' market is open from 10 am to 2 pm and is the perfect way to start the weekend. It's open all year round, too.
I didn't buy too much this time because we're in the process of moving again (more on that later), but I foresee coming here on a regular basis to stock up on locally grown fruits, veggies, and flowers. The farmers' market at San Pedro Square Market is as much a feast for the eyes as it is a feast for the table.
A lot of great things are happening in downtown San Jose, and San Pedro Square Market feels like the epicenter of it all. It was home to SJ MADE/SJ EATS this past weekend as well, a sort of urban craft fair of local vendors, artists, and of course, food trucks. It's exciting and promising to see how things have changed since we left.
Tip: Don't forget your reusable shopping bags.
