Vineyard Farmers Market in Fresno

My wife is a huge fan of locally grown, organic food so when we travel she goes out her way to find new farmers markets to visit. This one in Fresno had been high on her list since she saw a picture of the hanging vines that lined the top of the markets walkway and so when we happened to be in Fresno, during a Saturday when it was open, it was a must stop. If you like farmers markets as well or if you just want a few awesome pictures then be sure to stop by the Vineyard Farmers Market in Fresno.

After arriving at the farmers market on the corner of Blackstone and Shaw I was easily able to find parking in the main lot then head into the market itself.

I was surprised by how small the market actually was as I anticipated it to be bigger, but there was still a lot of things to see / purchase from the dozen or so vendors. Some of my favorites are below.

Chocolate Vendor

I was really excited to sit and talk with this vendor as they had 3-4 different types of chocolate from all around the world and they let you try them and taste the different flavors. I have done this with coffee but never with chocolate so it was fun and I took home my favorite bar at the end.

Fruit / Veggies

As with any farmers market there were a bunch of fruit and veggie sellers. They were all pretty great, but there was one with many different types of stone fruit and I loved sampling all the unique takes on fruits like peaches and nectarines. I took home a decent amount of this fruit as well.

Farmers Market V-2

The same can be said for the tomato vendors, the yellow cherry tomatoes were some of the best I had ever had. My wife and I got some just to have as a snack when we went into Kings Canyon and it was good choice as they had a ton of flavor.

There are of course more vendors to see here as well so I would recommend you just make the stop and check it out for yourself. I truly enjoyed this farmers market as it was incredibly beautiful and had nice people who seemed to be enjoying themselves while shopping, it was infectious.
