About the Market

Answers to some frequently asked questions.

You’ll find fresh, seasonal produce from more than 20 regional growers selected by our partners at the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association. There are also several hot food options for a quick, yummy lunch. You can also shop at special artisan vendors booths as well.

Starting May 7, 2021, the Farmers’ Market is moving to the 400 block of South First Street between San Salvador and William streets.  Get off the VTA Light Rail at the Convention Center or Paseo stops at First and Second Street and walk two blocks to the Market.
 
VTA Bus lines stop near the market, too.
 
For parking, ParkSJ’s Second and San Carlos Garage  offers free parking for the first 90 minutes and is only a block and a half away.
 
Once downtown, the Farmers’ Market is at most a 10-minute walk from anywhere you are.

Get 90 minutes free parking at Park SJ Garages. The closest ParkSJ Garage is at Second and San Carlos streets. More about downtown San Jose parking at ParkSJ.org.  SoFA also has a lot of surface street parking.  When it opens, the Convention Center Garage is about a block away, but has varying rates.

We love your pets, however, California law prohibits them in the food section at the market unless they are certified service animals. If you bring your pet to the market (allowed in the artisan area), please bring a friend to walk them on the adjacent sidewalk and/or let them play in the dog park a block away. 

We like to think everything about the Market is pretty special. But if you are looking for deals on fresh, local fruits, vegetables and other goodies, look no further.

Help keep the Market earth-friendly by using the compost and recycle bins.

The vendors are doing their part, too. They use biodegradable bags and compostable plates and silverware.

San Jose Downtown Association partners with City of San Jose Environmental Services Department to divert 90 percent of trash from the Market out of landfill. Thanks to Republic Services for assisting in zero-waste efforts.
