Santa Monica Farmers Markets information
You haven’t really experienced Santa Monica until you’ve explored one of its weekly outdoor farmers markets stocked with organic fruits, vegetables, flowers, baked goods and freshly shucked oysters.
The Wednesday market begins on 3rd and Arizona and winds along three blocks – it's the biggest and arguably the best for fresh produce, which is why it’s so often patrolled by local chefs. The Sunday morning market on Main St has more of a community scene. There’s live music, pony rides, and a half-dozen stalls cooking up omelettes, tamales, crepes and grilled corn. Just hand your bicycle to the valet (um, yes, we know, but it is free), and relax with the locals on the lawn.
