Description and review of the McKinley Park Farmers Market, a Sunday farmers’ market (+ more) located along H Street near the McKinley Park Rose Garden.
Opening day for the new McKinley Park Farmers Market was Sunday, June 25. The year-round market will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. rain or shine. An exception, I am told, is when winds of 20+ mph are forecast. Keep an eye out on the markets’ website or Facebook and Instagram pages for any last-minute schedule changes.

McKinley Park Farmers Market – Opening Day
The Sunday morning of the opening day of the market I walked over to McKinley Park around 10:30 a.m. Parked along H Street were several food trucks in the immediate vicinity.
I was immediately impressed by the long row of stalls set up on the grass. The market, consisting of produce from local farms, fresh prepared foods and craft vendors was larger than I had anticipated. Walking up and down the rows checking out the wares of the vendors I chatted with several of them. Everyone was friendly and happy to be there.
Among the fresh and fresh prepared food items on display from multiple vendors were:
- Pork (bacon)
- Fresh Juices
- Afghani prepared foods
- Hot sauce
- Olive oil
- Olive mix
- Dog treats
There were also a number of crafters offering a variety of hand-crafted items including:
- Bath bombs
- Hair barrettes
- Garden art
- Metal art
- Wood cutting boards
Various vendors were offering samples, so I tried several, including a tasty beverage at the fresh juice bar.
After scoping out all of the market stalls I circled back and made several purchases. As I was doing my shopping, I ran into several neighbors who were likewise taking advantage of what the market had to offer.

To sum up, I see myself becoming a regular at this Sunday farmers market. After chatting with various neighbors, the general consensus appears to be that the new farmers market is a welcome addition to the McKinley Park/East Sacramento neighborhood.
