Hollister Farmers Market

The Hollister Farmers Market is every Wednesday, from 3 to 7 p.m, until the end of September!  Hooray! 

Farmers, orchardists, and other vendors will line Fifth Street, between San Benito and Monterey, so  bring your shopping bags and head on down for afternoon/early evening fun!  You might even think about having dinner down there as well. BBQ, hot dogs, enchiladas, and pies are some of the available offerings. Live music, too!  Tomorrow, (May 19), Jillian Shaw  will be singing on the lawn, while guitarists David Huboi and Vince Zuniga will be performing in front of City Hall.

Now, here's a list of Farmers Market vendors, thanks to Tammy Jackson, the Farmers Market Manager,  at the Hollister Downtown Association
