Agricultural Freshness at 3 Farmers Markets
Dating back to the Gold Rush era, Petaluma has had a reputation as an area of agricultural abundance. Today, visitors can explore Petaluma’s three farmers markets and discover – and taste! – all the deliciousness picked fresh from the field that morning.
Visitors and locals alike enjoy shopping the year-round Tuesday Farmers Market from conveniently located at Lucchesi Park, 320 N. McDowell Blvd., from 10am-1:30pm with lots of free parking.

In the heart of downtown, shady Walnut Park on Petaluma Blvd. South and D Streets, hosts the Saturday Farmers Market from mid-May through mid-November, from 2-5pm.
