Description and review of the Saturday morning Sacramento Midtown Farmers Market.
It was 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning when I grabbed my heavy canvas tote bag and headed over to the Midtown Farmers Market located on 20th Street. The Midtown Farmers Market has now expanded beyond the block between J and K Streets – towards L Street.

The Midtown Farmers Market is year-round, but during the winter months it is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather i.e. rain and high winds. I personally tend to patronize the Midtown Farmers Market primarily during the summer months – only occasionally stopping by during winter.
While the market opens at 8:00 a.m., I find that going around 9:00 a.m. still allows me to easily find street parking nearby – plus the market is generally not overly crowded at that time.
As is my practice, I made the rounds of all the booths checking out the offerings before returning to make my purchases. Assorted fruits and vegetables, fish and meat, honey, olive oil, herbs, nuts, cheese, flowers – and much more were on display.
I was offered and accepted a variety of taste samples – blueberries, strawberries, cheese, flavored almond milk, etc.

On 20th Street between K and L Streets is where you will find the prepared food vendors. In addition to making purchases I noted that a number of patrons were also taking time to enjoy a bite to eat.
I stopped by the Upper Crust Bakery booth and purchased a loaf of Jewish Deli Rye bread before I headed back across K Street to make my remaining purchases.
As I made my earlier first pass of the fresh produce booths I was told that this was the last week for asparagus – so that was my next stop. Having enjoyed the sample provided, I decided to pick up a basket of strawberries as well.
After I made my purchases I decided to look over the booths of the nearby specialty craft/artisan vendors. Hand-made soap and lotions, candles, pottery, art, clothing and paper goods were on display.
At that point I decided to call it a day and headed back to my car after an enjoyable hour of taking in the sights and smells of the Midtown Farmers Market.
