A great food market

Farm fresh in Half Moon Bay: Boasting the highest percentage of local vendors in California, the Coastside Farmers' Market of Half Moon Bay at Shoreline Station is consistently ranked among the best in the Bay Area. Community ranchers, farmers, fishermen, artisans and visitors gather to the backdrop of local music among aromas of fresh produce, honey, cheese and flowers. Get there early to catch chicken farmer Ben Young's eggs (yep, that's Neil Young's son) before they sell out. [Visit WeekendSherpa.com for more about getting outdoors in Northern California]
