With farmers markets all over Monterey County, nearly every day of the week year-round, it’s easy to find fresh local produce in this blessed coastal nook of California. So it must not be the juicy berries, crisp greens or fresh nuts that make the Tuesday afternoon cornucopia on Alvarado stand out; our readers must gravitate toward this market over all other markets for the mouthwatering spread of international hot foods, maybe, from Korean barbecue to Lebanese shawarma. Or the crafters selling hand-woven baskets and Big Sur jade jewelry. Musicians make you skip to the strawberries, and you’ll probably run into some friends while you shop. It’s not just a market – it’s Monterey’s own Marrakesh.
