Address
Neighbourhood: Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.

A great place to pick up some unique gifts when visiting Santa Monica. We bought some really juicy looking olives.

Fresh food

We experienced Santa Monica Market on Saturday. It is a fairly small area you walk through quite quickly. However, there are still good selection of fresh fruits, veggies, bread, nuts etc. Parking was easy. If you happen to be in Santa Monica on Saturdays certainly worth checking out.

First Class Farmers Market; Go for the local food, the experience and the vibe
Nov 2019
Santa Monica has a few farmers markets; the downtown Wednesday market is the best. The Saturday morning Virginia Park market, which we attended today, is tiny by comparison. Tiny as it was, it was a great stop and a great way to finish our Santa Monica trip. Read on for details.

Located near Santa Monica College, the free parking starts to fill early; we arrived a few minutes after 8am as things were warming up and parked easily. The vendors have arrived from 2-3 hours away in multiple directions. There were trays of giant strawberries, tables of beautiful heirloom tomatoes (at $3.50/pound), fresh flowers, apples, persimmons and an array of vegetables. Food trucks offered fresh juice, coffee and baked goods. The winner for me: beekeeper Don from Saugus and a jar of peach blossom honey.

If you have never been to a farmers market and are in Santa monica when they are running, check it out; you will leave a fan.

Buying from local farmers and food producers is one of the easiest ways you can support sustainable, healthy agriculture. And the taste is so much better, it's well worth planning an outing. Bring your reusable bags! There's honey, bread, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, nuts, fruit, vegetables, cheese, lotion, flowers...all the things! They make it so easy and affordable to Shop Local. Super easy way to vote with your dollars.

Get the strawberries
Apr 2019
Great market with lots of variety of stalls and lots of acvitivites going on. I had the best strawberries ever here and still can’t get over them! Produce is very reasonable and it makes for a beautiful morning out.

Lovely Market

I was in Santa Monica for 16 days for work. I enjoyed visiting the Santa Monica farmers market for breakfast on Saturday morning. I enjoyed fresh squeezed orange juice and pastries. The market had so much wonderful looking produce that I was bummed I wasn’t home to be able to stock my fridge with fresh veggies and fruit. Friendly people and great atmosphere.

Good collection of local producers with all categories of food covered. Also plants and other stuff, good atmosphere, no hassle and seems like a friendly vibe. Drifted through here whilst looking for a cool shady spot for a drink.

What a nice way to start Saturday morning. Grab a cup of coffee and wander through the stalls chick full of beautiful produce and flowers. Wish we had more time as we would've picked up goodies for a beach side picnic!
