Historic Folsom’s Farmers Market


On a recent Sunday morning while most of my family slept, my daughter, sister, aunt and I headed over to the Farmers Market at 900 Sutter Street in historic Folsom. With the sun shining and a giant cup of coffee in hand, we parked on a side street and traipsed across the cobblestones to peek into the more than two dozen stalls that make up this Sunday morning market.

From 8 AM to noon you can taste and purchase locally grown fruit and honey, a variety of fresh vegetables and beautiful flowers, as well as baked goods and homemade sauces. We sampled sweet white nectarines, as well as locally procured honey infused with a hint of blackberry. We saw pomegranate grilling sauces, fresh green beans, eggplant, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, beets – you name it.

Since my sister’s baby shower was only a few hours away, we spent a lot of time at the flower stall, where for $6 I was able to purchase a beautiful bouquet of summer flowers. (I loved them so much I ended up buying two!)

As we left, we noticed scores of people enjoying breakfast at various Sutter Street cafes and vowed that our next trip to this picturesque market would include breakfast!
