This looks like a delightful farmer's market, I just wish it was open on Saturday because I have chosen not to shop on Sundays. The Fallbrook farmer's market in the village square should be renamed to a craft or artisan market because rarely is there actual food from a farm or the like.

Temecula Farmers market on Saturday is still the best by far, so many selections of fresh produce. I just don't understand whyFallbrook with all this open land and farmers cannot seem to duplicate Temecula. I tried the new farmers market at valley Fort and was so disappointed, hope it will improve with time so I won't have to drive so far.

I was very excited for the new farmers market - but I too was very disappointed. There HAS to be more vegetables, two tables is not enough and please bring variety! Yes, where is the one in Temecula?

The Valley Fort Sunday Farmers market has been open for two months now I'm not sure but I'm going to guess the Temcula Farmers Market has been there for quite some time. If you want to see this market grow go and support it. There are more farmers now at the Valley Fort Sunday Farmers market, it can only get better from here.
