The Hayward Farmers Market is located on Watkins, between B and C Streets, next to Hayward City Hall Plaza. For more than 20 years, the farmers market in Hayward has been the place for the local community to get their fill of fresh, healthy, locally grown fruits and vegetables. The Hayward Farmers Market is open every Saturday, year-round, rain or shine, from 9am to 1pm.
Tri-City Street Fair (9 am – 4pm) at Ohlone College, 43600 Mission Boulevard, Fremont, CA, parking Lot G. An open-air market featuring local artisans, businesses, artists, and organizations from the Bay Area! This family friendly event has something for everyone—from clothing, to keepsakes, arts & crafts, to delicious food and drinks with a dedicated kid zone including a bouncy house, face painting, and free workshops. Bring your furry friends along with you as we’ll be offering a gated dog park on site as well! As an extension of the Ohlone College Campus attendees will also have a unique opportunity to learn about Ohlone College, the Ohlone for Kids program, community education classes, and more. One hundred percent of the revenue generated through the sales of our vendor spaces goes directly to supporting Ohlone College programs that impact students—by supporting local vendors, you’re also supporting your own community college students. Come and support local businesses and organizations and have some family fun! Admission and parking for this event is FREE.
