The Wharf Marketplace is a convenient one-stop shop for all things fresh and local. Visitors and locals alike can purchase everything from seafood, flowers, cheeses, meats, vegetables to wines. The permanent farmers' market is conveniently located at the Pacific Railroad Passenger Station just between Old Fisherman's Wharf and the Commercial Wharf where many of the fishing boats unload their fresh catches. The Marketplace is open daily 7am-7pm but closes at 2pm on Tuesdays during Monterey's Oldtown Farmers' Market.

Combine education and edible delights when you make a visit to The Farm in the verdant Salinas Valley.

Enjoy the fresh certified organic produce, tours and visits with the farm animals. The Farm also hosts several events throughout the year like Apple Day, Fall Festival, Day of Thanksgiving and more.
