During the holidays you can listen to carolers, as they’re dressed in costume straight out of a Dickens novel. While the Marketplace provides a plethora of food, produce, arts & crafts, and community services, it is most importantly a cultural focal point of Monterey. As the largest congregation of locals year round, the Farmer’s Market offers a place for people to visit friends, make new ones, catch up with acquaintances, and discuss current affairs.
