Contact: +1 408 298 4303
Open Hours: 8:30a-noon Su
Even if it is pouring rain, growers will be hawking their wares at this longtime San Jose institution, and customers will be there to greet them. Greens, breads, potatoes, eggs, onions, unusual Asian vegetables and pumpkins attract locals and out-of-towners to this market every Sunday. The selection is always excellent, there are many hard-to-find items such as bitter melon and long beans that are rarely seen outside of specialty markets. Do not miss the Mochi, a candy-like treat made from pounded rice and filled with sweetened beans. Credit card acceptance varies by vendor.
