This is one of the best farmers’ markets to serve the Carmichael region. It’s located in the parking lot at the Country Club Plaza Mall. It’s liked for being small and having lots of parking.

Sacramento Farmers’ Market

W St & 8th St
Sacramento, CA 95818
This market is under the freeway, but over the top when it comes to variety of produce and other products. There is so much to see, so we recommend planning to spend lots of time. You can get some good deals on organic fruits, veggies and meat, including fish. It’s located under Highway 50, so it can be a little noisy, but you’re always in the shade. You can find a lot of comments about this market on the web. It’s open year-round on Sundays between 8 a.m. and noon.
