When is the farmers market moving to the City Center? The farmers were displaced from that location, and were unceremoniously relocated to a side road where no one can see them. From a flourishing market of 20+ farmers, we only see 4-5 farmers now. The City Center will fail if it hosts only high-end shopping. The farmers create a healthy community, and will attract more shoppers to come to the City Center.

Negativity is never “positive” as the above person Sarah commented on the San Ramon farmer’s market.relocation.

This is a major center in its infancy.

Go to the farmers market in Danville for now. It is very nice and has a great selection.

I am looking forward to going there. Mendocino Farms is a terrific restaurant and the city needs a wonderful hub like this to have as a focus.

I have not been in there yet, but the outside design is disappointing. Looks like a mall from the 80s. It would have been nice to have a design that was more reflective of California, Mt. Diablo and the surrounding rolling hills. It feels like it was designed by an international firm for use anywhere, not specifically for us. I hope it's not out of date in a decade or so.

That’s one ugly building. And it’s covered in giant billboards. It’s even worse inside, as you’re surrounded by enormous four story high walls, so you feel like you’re trapped inside a giant box.

It’s a shame, because that location had some of the best views of Mount Diablo. All wasted.

It has no natural space, just sterile concrete. Strolling around it, I felt like I was at an industrial site, walking forever without seeing anything interesting. Most of the shops are still empty, so hopefully it will be better once they open.
