Carmel and Del Monte Farmers Markets Open in May

Two of the seasonal farmers market reopen for the season in May,  On Tuesday, May 3, the Carmel Farmers Market at the Barnyard Shopping Village in Carmel will mark the beginning of its 13th season as it opens for business. Later in the week, the Del Monte Farmers Market at the Del Monte Center in Monterey will celebrate the opening of its seventh year on Sunday, May 8, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“You can’t help but love this market at the Barnyard,” said Catherine Barr, MBCFM executive director. “The grounds are beautifully landscaped and in full bloom with seasonal flowers. Customers come by to pick up something to eat and then sit and enjoy the view before they shop.”

The Sunday morning Del Monte Market next to Whole Foods is a relaxed market which draws a later crowd. “We enjoy our relationship with Whole Foods,” Barr said. “The same folks who like to shop at farmers markets for fresh local produce also shop at Whole Foods. It’s a sweet way to enjoy a leisurely Sunday morning outside. Even our farmers can relax a bit after a busy work week!”
