16th Downtown Farmers Market Opens On April 5 at Main Library
The popular Downtown San Leandro Farmers’ Market returns for its 16th season on Wednesday, April 5, from 3PM until 7PM. After a successful run in 2022, the market will return to the Main Library parking lot at 300 Estudillo Avenue. The 2023 market will run from April 5 through October 4. An opening ceremony and ribbon cutting with Mayor Juan González III will take place at 6:00PM on April 5th (weather permitting).
The Downtown San Leandro Farmers’ Market hosts an average of 2,500 patrons weekly. Community members have found the market to be a great place to meet family and friends, and enjoy live music, fantastic food and family-friendly entertainment.
There will be up to 30 vendors at the 2023 Farmers’ Market, including San Leandro’s Hummus Heaven. Popular vendors, including Jaden’s Kettle Corn, Stueve Organic Family Farms, Bunbao, J&M Farms, Dumpling King, JC’s Holey Donuts, and of course the popular Roli Roti rotisserie chicken, will be returning to the market. Gotelli Farms and the Sharp Brothers will join the market in May. Live music will also return on a weekly basis, coordinated by the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association. On opening day, music will be provided by energetic Afro-Caribbean band Conjunto Trujillo. Bring comfortable shoes for dancing!
As a special courtesy accommodation for the new location, parking on the first floor of the Downtown Parking Garage will be free starting at 3PM on Wednesdays during the market season. The garage is located at 122 Estudillo Avenue (Visit www.parksl.com for more information).
Due to construction taking place at E. 14th Street and Callan for the run of this year’s market season, market visitors are encouraged to avoid Callan Avenue between E. 14th and Harrison Streets, and to utilize the parking garage entry/exit located on Estudillo Avenue instead.
There is also ample street parking on both Callan Street and Estudillo Avenue, adjacent to the Library parking lot. Entry to the Library parking lot will be closed on Callan Street, and partially closed on Santa Rosa Street. The entry on Estudillo Avenue will remain open.
