We feel so bad when our wonderful shoppers come at 8:00 or 8:30, before the market is open.

Our regular fall hours continue this Saturday and through the end of October, opening an hour later:  9:00 to Noon.


 We love our five Old Beach Farmers Market restaurants, who continue to delight us with their signature preparations and perhaps a few innovative surprises.

Croc’s, Fruitive, Pasta e Pani, Pelon’s Baja Grill, and Terrapin are our stalwart heroes, coming each Saturday to tempt you.

Honey? Guacamole? Gnocchi? Kale chips? Mozzarella?

The freshness and authenticity of ingredients, purchased eye-to-eye from the folks who make it, keep us coming back for more.

And our rolling restaurant, Hashi Food Truck, will be there, too!

See you Saturday.


 Musician Bethany Heijermans will be at the Market from 10 a.m. -noon.



 Impress guests with miniature trifles for dessert, topped with a decadent caramel sauce.

Start with a favorite sweet treat that you pick up at Old Beach Farmers Market – brownies, cookies, or even a slice or two of pie – and chop into bite-sized pieces.

In a canning jar, start with a layer of your chopped sweet, and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream; repeat and top with a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Here’s how to make my Easy Caramel Sauce:

Create a double boiler by placing a pot of water on the stove top and bringing to a boil. Place a metal bowl or another pot atop, making sure it sits securely, but does not touch the boiling water in the first pot.

Add one 14-ounce can of condensed milk. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until milk thickens and turns a golden color.

Remove from heat, add 1/4 stick butter and a pinch of sea salt and whisk until mixture is smooth. Cool about a half-hour before use. Sauce can be refrigerated – gently warm before use.

Yields about 1-1/2 cups
