The opening of the new farmers’ market in Alamo today was greeted with an enthusiastic reception from the locals who feel that this is a good addition to the community. My husband and I rode from Walnut Creek on our bikes, but there was plenty of parking available for cars. The market is arranged in an L-shape around the Bank of America, which allows an easy flow of customers checking out the varied offerings by the vendors. The stall holders are pleasant, and the prices of produce are reasonable for this area. For us, this market, open from 9:00 to 1:00, will be an easy stop after church on Sundays.
