Farmers' Market

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19:

 

The Downtown Santa Monica Wednesday and Saturday Markets will continue to be an option for shoppers to have access to fresh produce in an open setting to maximize social distancing. All markets will continue offering CalFresh/EBT for low income shoppers to access healthy produce. The market's continuation of service will also minimize economic impacts to participating small Farmers, so they remain able to serve the market community in the months and years to come.

All vendors and customers are requested to avoid the market for non-essential visits, if ill, and if concerned of potential COVID-19 transmission. Additional options for hand washing and hand sanitizer are available at each market in addition to plumbed restrooms. Any updates to market programming will be provided on both the City of Santa Monica & Santa Monica Farmers Market social media and website.

 

DATES

Wednesdays and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. - rain or shine.

 

LOCATION

Arizona Avenue between Second and Fourth streets.

 

DESCRIPTION

Now a twice-weekly event covering four city blocks, the Downtown Santa Monica Farmers' Market is acclaimed as the place to go for the highest quality and largest selection of locally grown fruits and vegetables in Southern California.  

 

More than 100 times each year, home cooks and award-winning chefs gather to sample and purchase exotic citrus fruits, eye-popping greens, freshly picked berries and more varieties of tomatoes, tubers, squash and mushrooms than you probably knew existed. Sixty percent of the market's vendors operate certified organic farms.

 

This friendly, family-oriented community gathering also features artisan cheeses, natural meats, baked goods, fresh seafood, and other products and events for food lovers.

 

The vibrant open-air shopping experience, the unsurpassed selection and the opportunity to interact with food producers are just a few of the reasons why close to a million shoppers a year visit the Downtown Santa Monica Farmers' Market — and rarely leave with an empty stomach!   

 

Insider Tip

People sure do love those Farmers' Market Instagram pics #SMFMS and you might be able to take a selfie with a celebrity chef. Most farmers prefer cash over credit or debit cards.
