Santa Monica holds several regular farmers' markets on different days of the week and in different locations. The big one, on Wednesdays, radiates out from the corner of Second and Arizona and attracts an amazing array of vendors, from fruits and vegetables, to eggs, flowers, meats and sea foods, cheeses, honeys, nuts, and plants. If you go early, you'll see... More

First, who knew LA even had a metro? It was convenient to ride to the large and vegetably spectacular Santa Monica Farmers Market from downtown LA. Downtown Santa Monica stop is one block front the market. Citrus crop was the big star on my visit. Tons of stuff to taste and buy.

Markets then brunch anyone? Yes the answer is yes. Live music, fresh organic food, water melon slushies. It's a lovely way to start the morning.

We drove here from Carlsbad and it took about an hour on a Sunday. Parking was easy to find, the market was full of friendly people, great product, eggs and food. There wasn't anything I couldn't find here. They offer live music with plenty of seating under tents which is great in a rainy day or to get in the... More

Great fresh produce and flowers. It's easy to get to and close to hotels. There was lots of variety of fruits and vegetables and we bought some yummy dates.

Visited on a Wednesday morning and spent some time perusing their stalls. Ended up buying some strawberries which ended up being the most delicious strawberries we had ever tasted! We also got some tasty but expensive apples as well as blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.

Santa Monica's Farmers Markets are the best on the Westside. Downtown (Wednesday & Saturdays) has the most vendors with a large variety, Pico (Saturday) is convenient to the east side of town & Main Street (Sunday) is family friendly and has acozy community feeling.

We visited the Santa Monica farmer's market last Sunday. It is very centrally located; we walked along the beach to get there. There was a wonderful assortment of vegetables, baked goods, and vendors selling coffee and breakfast foods. We grabbed some breakfast, sat under a tent and listened to a still drum band. A great way to start a day.

I've been to a lot of Farmer's Markets and I rate the Santa Monica one as one of the best. The produce is truly fresh and high quality, there are blocks and blocks of vendors, and there is something for everyone there.... not just produce! In addition, it is part of Third Street in Santa Monica and close to the... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
