Only the San Francisco Ferry Building Market beats them for the market and San Luis Obispo for the fun atmosphere. Lots of variety, very high quality, numerous stands, friendly service. Always busy with local premium restaurants getting their produce. Great people watching of locals and out of town visitors. Musical artisans are also there show casing their talents. Check it...

Wide variety of excellent produce, some honey and some nuts-- primarily almonds and pistachios that I saw along with a good selection of flowers.

The community turns out for this very large and complete Farmer's Market. A must place to visit. The area has a farmer's market everyday but Monday but this is by far the oldest, most complete and best attended.

Don't get me wrong - the vendors were very good, we bought some honey and some nuts to bring home to MA. It was just a single file of vendors for two blocks, and was a little crowded. However, if you like farmers' markets (we do), by all means go.

So much variety - of flowers, fruits, veggies, and unique canned goods. Great prices from my perspective. The desire is to buy five of everything...one must remember the limits of one's stomach :)

We were visiting and happened upon the Farmer's Market on Tuesday night. Prepare yourself for such a large variety of vendors (lots of restaurants chefs purchasing goods too). We purchases berries and sprouted seeds and brought them back to our hotel to eat over the following days.

It's not a big farmers market, but it is a rainbow of color. Blocking the street in front of our hotel made it impossible to miss. In almost every booth, I had to remind my wife that we were not able to buy produce as we continued on to SF. It all looked as though it had been picked that... More

A very nice small Farmers Market in Downtown Santa Barbara on Saturday Mornings. Lots of high quality vendors with a wide variety of food products. The emphasis is on Farmers, not prepared foods and cheap crafts.

We found the Saturday market by accident. It's not large, but doesn't lack anything. A good mixture of fish, meat, flowers, veg etc. I only missed a good bread stall. I particularly liked the seafood. We got 2 lb's of shrimp for $10 they were fabulous. There Was an eclectic mix of music, some great, others cring worthy. I thing... More
