I have been to quite a few farmers markets in southern California, but other than San Luis Opispo, this one is the best. There is a nice balance of produce and packaged gourmet items (e.g., olives, honey, etc), and a number of musicians at different points, all talented. Most of the produce is organic and a lot of it small... More

No matter you are hungry or not, you gotta get food from this farmer's market. We were there for a day and we got our next morning breakfast all from this market as we could not resist temptation on how fresh and tasty everything is. Also a lot of variety of fruit, vegetables, pie, honey etc.

I absolutely loved the Farmers market- everything was fresh and fabulous. The food was displayed well and plenty of vendors were giving out samples. What a glorious thing to do on a leisurely Saturday morning. really enjoyed it and wonderful produce. I saw fruit and veges there I had not seen anywhere else.

We stopped by while on a cruise ship port visit. The array of fresh produce was amazing. We had some delicious strawberries.

This is by far the best farmer's market in all of Southern California! We go up for the day at least once every 3-4 months and just stroll the market and then have lunch in SB

This happens every Saturday a few blocks from State Street. I know, another farmers market so what? That is what we thought until we arrived. Tons of fresh local organic foods and flowers. Many samples available and everything is tasty and affordable. We spent several hours walking around this relatively small market. We recommend the Pequots, most fruits and Pistachios.... More

I've been to larger farmers markets, but this one had a good variety for the size. We bought goat cheese, strawberries, spinach, organic eggs, and olive bread. Made the best breakfast the next day. There were also beautiful flowers & lavender.

Locavors, Vegetarians, Vegans, and Justplainfolks, grab your napkins and dig in. Here is a charming farmer's market with a plentiful variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables. How many kinds of strawberries can you name? How red is really fresh pomegranate? What is a cherimoya? Flower vendors offer floral beauty to place in the hands of your beloved or to... More

We visited several farmers markets in Santa Barbara county and the Cota Street market is the best. Fresh pasta from Solvang was the best find. Highly recommend challenging yourself to prepare meals entirely prepared with purchases from the farmers market.
