Two Larkspur Landmarks Partner on Special Promotion Featuring Complimentary Transportation Between San Francisco and Larkspur

Marin Country Mart's partner in the promotion expressed similar enthusiasm. Jim Swindler, Golden Gate Ferry Deputy General Manager, added, "Guests from San Francisco can enjoy two Larkspur landmarks - a relaxing ferry ride with easy access to all of the shops and eateries at Marin Country Mart - a treat for everyone."

The promotion kicks off on Thursday, August 1. Throughout the month-long ferry promotion period, Marin Country Mart plans an abundance of exciting events to complement the onsite artisans and entrepreneurs. Here's a sampling of what's in store - and all of these special events are complimentary.

  • Folkish Festival: The festival features a range of musical concerts, from traditional folk music to up-&-comers, including Leftover Cuties, The Honeycutters, and Claudia Russell and the Folk Unlimited Orchestra. This series continues weekly through September 29 on Sundays from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m.
  • Friday Night Jazz: The jazz series, offered through September 27 on Fridays from 6 - 9 p.m., showcases some of California's best jazz players, including the George Cole Quintet and Gypsy Jazz, Lorca Hart Trio, and Katie Thiroux Duo.
  • Marin Country Mart Farmers' Market: Open year-round on Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m., The Farmers' Market showcases the freshest seasonal offerings from local farmers and purveyors, with an emphasis on organic and sustainable goods. There are also many fun activities to delight kids: pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, kid's music or storytelling, children's crafts, and live music.
  • Off the Grid: A roaming mobile food extravaganza, Off the Grid cruises to Marin Country Mart every Sunday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Eight vendors offer delicious food, enhanced by live music and splendid views of the bay and Mount Tam.
