Farmers Market Treats for Valentine's Day

This Valentine’s Day, indulge your loved ones and yourself with locally grown flowers and handcrafted treats from CUESA’s farmers markets. There are many opportunities to show your local love at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; and Jack London Square Farmers Market on Sundays.

At the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, satisfy their sweet tooth with seasonal cookies and cakes from Batter Bakery, treats from Craftsman and Wolves, handcrafted cheesecake from Crumble and Whisk; award-winning apple cider caramels from Little Apple Treats, and scrumptous pies from Three Babes BakeshopBisou Chocolate will bring hand-rolled truffles and small-batch dark chocolate bars made in the East Bay using sustainably sourced beans.

For a sweet Sunday at Jack London Square Farmers Market, Dot’s Baking Pantry and Feel Good Bakery always have something delicious and made with love. Way to Life Foods has Cacao Granola Bark, and Bisou Chocolate has made-in-the-East-Bay chocolates.

Honey for your honey? Show some love for local bees and beekeepers, too, by visiting from Marshall’s Farm Natural Honey and City Bees.

Roses are red…but out of season, and often not grown locally and sustainably. Instead, choose beautiful freshly cut tulips, ranunculi, anemones, flowering branches, and other local, seasonal, and sustainably grown flowers from Cypress Flower Farm, Devoto Gardens, McGinnis Ranch, and Four Sisters Farm at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and Medrano’s Flowers at our Jack London Square market. Find out why locally grown flowers are a cut above the rest.

Pamper them with lavender sachets, massage balms, scrubs, and others lovingly made bath products from Eatwell Farm, along with aromatherapeutic hydrosols from Allstar Organics, all at the Ferry Plaza. At Jack London Square, find Wisdom by Wisdom Natural Soaps, with cupcake soaps that are sweet treats for your skin. 

At the Ferry Plaza, slurp some fresh Hog Island oysters and a dash of hot sauce from Tierra Vegetables and Happy Quail Farms, for that added spice.

And for breakfast in bed, pick up freshly squeezed orange juice and pasture-raised eggs from our local farmers. Check out our recipe archives for farm-fresh brunch ideas.

And don’t forget: the farmers market is for lovers, so put yourself in the mood with these sweet tales of farmers market romance!
