Farmers Markets and Fruit Stands in Stanislaus County - Part 3

Part 3 of my Stanislaus County Farmers Market series is about the Modesto Certified Farmers Market.  This market is held every Thursday and Saturday in downtown Modesto and runs from 7am to 1pm. This market has been existence for more than 30 years having been established in 1979.  The market is held on 16th St between H and I streets.Killer Bacon on a Stick

In addition to all of the fresh fruits and vegetable stands there are several food vendors at this market.  One of my favorites is the Greens Market booth where I enjoyed a breakfast wrap along with some Killer Bacon on a Stick.   And oh yeah, a salted caramel brownie too.

Another feature of this market are the cooking demonstrations by local chefs.  The chefs at each market will make something using ingredients found at the Modesto Certified Farmers Market.   I'm not sure Grilled Apricotswhat this days treats were called since I got there a bit late but they were delicious.   They were a grilled apricot half with marscapone cheese with honey drizzled over the top.  They were delicious. 

Of course you can find tons of fresh fruits and vegetables here including strawberries, blueberries, asparagus, purple asparagus, apricots, purple potatoes, beets, red potatoes, carrots, and broccoli and a whole lot more.  Of course as the year goes on other fruits and vegetables will become available.  We should be seeing lots of peaches, plums and nectarines in the very near future.

Bacon on a stick....and a salted caramel brownie.... send one or a dozen of each to me in Minnesota.  Sounds like a great time!

Belinda - We do have quite the selection of fresh fruits andvegetables here.

Suzanne - I'm not sure how well the bacon would ship and the brownies rarely make it home.
