Market Watch: Holiday Inspiration from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market


This holiday season, give the gift of good food while supporting local farmers and food artisans. As the days turn cold and rainy, farmers market vendors count on loyal customers like you to help sustain their businesses year-round. The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market is your one-stop shop for handmade, unique gift ideas from our farmers and food artisans, perfect for goodie baskets, stocking stuffers, and host or hostess gifts. We’ve got fresh flavors for all the food lovers in your life: the sweet tooth, the spice fiend, the home cook, you name it. Stop by the CUESA Info Booth on Saturday, Tuesday, or Thursday to pick up a printed copy of our holiday gift guide.

Can’t decide? Get your loved ones farmers market gift coins and let them pick out some treats for themselves. We also have Ferry Plaza Farmers Market canvas bags, aprons, and posters for purchase at the CUESA Info Booth every Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday. For that special someone who is passionate about good food but doesn’t want more stuff, consider making a donation to CUESA on their behalf to help cultivate a healthy food system.

In addition to great gifts you’ll also find all the makings for wholesome winter feasts. Celebrate the winter holidays with seasonally inspired recipes from our farmers and chefs. Check out the CUESA website for some of our favorite winter recipes or browse our holiday-inspired Pinterest board.

The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market will be open on Saturday, December 21, and Tuesday, December 24 (Christmas Eve), for all of your last-minute Christmas shopping needs. Please note that our market will be closed on Thursday, December 26, to allow our farmers time to enjoy time off with their families. Our regular market schedule resumes for the rest of the year (Saturday from 8 am to 2 pm; Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm), including New Year’s Eve (Tuesday, December 31) Thank you for supporting the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market season after season. Happy holidays from CUESA!
