2015 Hollister Certified Farmers' Market


The farmers' market in Downtown Hollister is open every Wednesday from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. until September 30. Whooo-hooo! 

The market is on San Benito Street, between Fourth and Seventh Streets. So, from around noon to 8 p.m or so, you'll need to find another way through Downtown Hollister. Truly no big deal for fresh vegetables, fruit, and meats; or for baked goods, prepared food, prepackaged foods, and food cooked on the spot; or for such other items as fresh flowers, plants, clothing, jewelry, and crafts. There are also information booths for products, businesses, and nonprofit groups.





The farmers market again features live music from local talents as well as culinary demonstrations. New this year is the First Wednesday Art Nights, hosted by the San Benito County Arts Council. In the works is wine tasting, also on the first Wednesday of the month. 

For more information about the Hollister Certified Farmers' Market, check out its webpage at the Downtown Hollister Association or the market's Facebook page.

    1. When we moved down here about 12 years ago, there was no place to purchase fresh organic produce, which was so ironic. Our options have increased over the years, thankfully.

  2. The farmer's markets here (Mississippi) are just beginning to open for this year, too. Local grown fruits and veggies, cut flower bouquets, fresh baked bread, cakes, and pies, pickles, relishes, jams, and jellies - Its wonderful!
    Have a great day!

  5. Our market just opened too, but there was a winter market held downtown in the community resource center. No fresh veggies, but breads, jams, etc. - Margy

    1. Open markets are fun to shop at. A luxury for me would be to live in an area where I could shop everyday at an open market for fresh ingredients for a day's meals.

  6. Looks like fun! We have one in our local town that I (unfortunately) don't get to as often as I would like!

    1. Some residents who commute out of town for work have expressed that our farmers' market should be open on a Saturday or Sunday. Unfortunately, our area is too small to compete for farmers, including local ones, who sell at farmers markets in large populated cities.

    1. If I had a van, I would've loved to have bought a pot of the flowers. I liked how the branch of blossoms curved.

  9. I love farmer's market. I wish they have them everyday instead of just once a week. I always bring home way more than I should.

    1. When I lived near San Francisco I could find a farmers' market to visit every day but Monday within a 30 mile radius. I got spoiled.
