Farmer’s Markets are part of the Marin lifestyle, being a weekly – or biweekly – destination for many Marin residents.  The newest market to join the lineup will be a Thursday evening Farmer’s Market in Ross Common. The new market will be Marin’s ninth Farmer’s Market – but a first for Ross, California.  This weekly event will be one of the smallest in Marin, but will be a welcome addition to the community.
