3. One of the Oldest and Most Successful Markets in California!
Named as one of California’s most oldest and successful farmers’ markets today can be under Highway 4 in downtown Stockton. Opened in 1979, and continues to draw thousands from across the region. This intriguing farmers’ market offers so much more than locally grown produce. The Golden Villa Farmers' Market is a year-round affair, open only on Saturday from 5:30 am to 11:00 am—or when the produce runs out—featuring the best exotic herbs and spices from Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Korea, and China. In addition to obscure ingredients, the market offers a diverse selection of seafood, tasty sweets, and a few food trucks in tow.
The amazing assortment of items landed this farmers’ market on Saveur Magazine’s Top 100 in 2007!
