It's always sad when the Benicia's farmers market season comes to a close. Put on by Benicia Main Street, it's our best community gathering place, an outdoor "living room" to see friends and acquaintances one wouldn't normally run into. The market runs April-October every Thursday, 4-8pm – pick up the season's best offerings this month including seasonal flowers and baked goods. Many locals make a beeline to the the market's food vendors, for Thursday evening dinner while taking in the crisp breeze off the Carquinez Strait.
