Farmers' Markets & Wine Tasting


[Under Construction]


Comprehensive map of Certified Farmer's Markets and Wine Tasting in and around Salinas.

This map highlights why Salinas is known as the 'Salad Bowl of the World' - Salinas boasts eight Certified Organic Farmer's Markets and several more in the Salinas Valley.  No trip to Salinas is complete without savoring our incredible wines and delicious produce.

Interesting are the other sites you will see on the fabulous wine route along River Road.  John Steinbeck wrote about many of the places there, and there still remain historic homes and old barns from days gone by.  The first stop should be the Farm to see and learn about how vegetables are grown and life on a farm.  Take a tour and buy some local produce from the farm stand. 

Chateau Coralini, now a luxurious bed & breakfast, originally was the Cory House and owned by the Violini family for many years, sits at the head of River Road, and the Buena Vista Grange can be seen while driving along.  Mission Soledad is close by, as are the original Mission School, now abandoned, and a historic Farm Labor Camp.

Don't miss a stop at Wild Things Animal Park - the ranch houses exotic animals used in movies and on television, a features a wild bed & breakfast on the premises.  Famous Joseph the Lion, who was the model for the Lion King and inspired the owner to found Wild Things, passed away in 2008. He is buried at the entrance as a tribute to love he inspired and remembrance of his fame and importance to Salinas.

If horsemanship is your thing, there is the Barlocker Rustling Oaks Ranch, also housing a fabulous bed & breakfast, where equestrian camps for kids and horseback riding lessons for kids of all ages are held.  Salinas Farmer's Market Crowd
