Arcata CA Farmer’s Market, A Great Place to Meet Friends

Community GatheringI know spring is right around the corner when the Arcata Farmer’s Market starts up in April. It’s by far one of the largest farmer’s markets in Humboldt County and a great place to bump into some of those friends you haven’t seen all winter long.

Every Saturday morning from 9am to 2pm, local organic farmers from all over Humboldt County come together on the Arcata Plaza to sell us fresh fruits and vegetables, literally harvested that morning.

Plus around 10am the music starts.  Each Saturday there is a different local band that will serenade you while you’re shopping for Saturday’s dinner.  And if you get hungry after making the rounds, there are plenty of local food vendors waiting to quiet that grumbling tummy of yours.  Last Saturday the Compost Mountain Boys played (great local bluegrass band).Compost Mt Boys

By far, the greatest thing about the Arcata Farmer’s Market is that it brings the community together.  We’re all out there enjoying the sunshine, great music, fresh vegetables and eachother every Saturday morning.  What more could you ask for 🙂

I’m looking forward to some serious fruits and vegetables soon, but in the meantime there are plenty of vegetable starts, greens, house plants and flowers available.  This is a great time to start buying plants to put in your own garden and socialize while you’re out looking for that perfect fuschia plant you want to put in your front yard.

Fresh Produce!

The North Coast Growers Association hosts several smaller farmer’s market throughout Humboldt County.

There’s 2 farmer’s markets in Eureka, 2 markets in Arcata (including the big one), and 1 in Fortuna, just to mention a few.

So if you’re already a local or thinking about becoming one and want to know when the farmer’s market will start in your neighborhood, just check here for the Humboldt County Farmer’s Market Schedule.
