A note about the Richmond Main Street Farmers' Market
Unfortunately, Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association, has decided to discontinue the seasonal Wednesday market at Nevin Plaza. We thank everyone for shopping there and supporting the producers and artisan vendors. We really appreciate it and we are sad to see the market discontinued. For this Spring/Summer, we are partnering with Freshest Cargo Mobile Farmers’ Market to add a stop in Downtown. For the timebeing, the Freshest Cargo truck will be operating in Downtown in place of the farmers’ market. We hope you are able to visit the truck. They have a lot of great produce at fantastic prices. With your continued patronage we hope to rebuild the market.

From Fresh Approach:

We’re sad to report that CiCi, our beloved East Bay truck, suffered a nasty injury last week. After a collision with a garage door (don’t worry – everyone’s ok!), the pop-up window can no longer open and close, making the truck a hazard to operate.

Our Freshest Cargo trucks are custom-built, which means that ordering the parts required for a repair can take longer than expected. For this reason, the some East Bay routes, including the one in Richmond, will be cancelled until further notice while we wait for repairs.
