Nice Hang Out

There is always some kind of live music. Crowded by 6pm. Lots of food vendors to choose from. It's a nice way to spend the evening.

We enjoyed walking around and sampling all the different food from the vendors. The Vietnamese was our favorite, and lots of desserts, including a large amount of gluten free options. The non food vendors were just okay.

Good food and many options for that. Too bad it's only on thursdays. Another thing that was weird for European, they didn't sell any beer or alcohol in general.

The only thing I don't love about this market is that it's on Thursday night, and I'm rarely able to get to Oceanside on a Thursday night. Great local produce, art, hot food, music, and other things to buy, taste, see or hear. Fun for all ages and all interests.

What better place to be at sundown than at the Oceanside Sunset Market, where you can find all kinds of delicious food, shop for unique and often local goods, enjoy the perfect weather, and be with other people doing the same thing. It is always a fun place. I always take visitors to this market if they are in town... More

Good street event loaded with people and authentic food. Something for everyone, most places offer samples before purchasing and many have displays of their food choices. Our group didn't go away hungry. Prices were reasonable too. If you are here on Thursdays, stop in and you will be surprised.

A friend suggested that we check out this event, but we didn't know what to expect. We found a great parking place, and started strolling. We were greeted by a duo performing acoustic music, and then we walked by a number of booths selling products - some homemade and some commercial. Four city blocks were blocked off in a a... More

LOTS of food options with a little bit of crafts. We came for dinner and there was live music and so many food choices. There's even a dessert isle with all kinds of sweets. The cheesecake one was amazing. Great way to spend a few hours listening to music and sampling foods.

The Oceanside Street Fair has a wide variety of foods, nick-knacks, and live entertainment. The bands vary from week to week.
