Farmers Market – Wednesday/Saturday Downtown Santa Monica


The Los Angeles area is famous for having a farmers market every day of the week, and the Santa Monica Farmers Market, held on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, is the mother of them all. Taking up several city blocks, the market is lined with seasonal fruits, vegetables, and other products and provisions.

 This farmers market has a huge following within L.A.’s restaurant industry. Some of the city’s most famous chefs, including Niki Nakayama of n/naka and Michael Cimarusti of Providence, shop here. You’ll also be among locals, many of them regulars, shopping for their home kitchens.
