Since Certified Farmers Markets vendors are local farmers,
they will not have everything you see at a grocery store who stock many items that are grown in climates other than our own.
But we have:

Did you know that sweet potatoes do not rot (in usual conditions)?
You can buy them and keep them at home with no problem
Greens are good as wells as carrots, kale, chard potatoes, ginger, great daikon (white radish), broccoli, beans, won bok, bok choy, squashes, lettuce, red radishes
Flowers, eggs and brussel sprouts
Beckmann's has the breads you want plus dinner rolls, foccacia, cookies & pies, pies pies!
Lujan Farms, J&J Farms,
Yerena Farms (organic but only in strawberry season)
Contreras Nursery (flowers, eggs and brussel sprouts on the stem)
Pa Vang and Chia Her, Tu Universo
Yerena is gone until they have strawberry season again!
Casablanca Teas every week!
Hummus Heaven
 And Now - Butler's BBQ for chicken & waffles on Sunday mornings at the market!
Ed's Honey Company will be at the market the first & third Sundays of the month

San Jose Bee Removals
Santa Clara County
Swarms collected and nests removed
We love them, but even Ed knows that it's important to have a biologist (Vector Control) look at a hive to determine whether it's an African killer bee hive or a European bee hive.
Don't aggravate the bees. Use the telephone and call for help.
