“Everything you need and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

My husband and I frequent our farmers market in our small town and this blew it out of the water. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, fresh lavender, olive oil galore. There was a great vibe with lots of people, good music and great food. We bought a breakfast sandwich and some lemonade for breakfast and it was amazing. They even have tables where you can sit and eat, as there were multiple tents selling ready made food. It was also very kid friendly, but they weren't all over the place. The unique food, music and atmosphere was one of the highlights of our trip to Santa Monica.

“Don't miss this fun spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

California cuisine starts here. The farmers bring in their fresh veggies, herbs, fruits, flowers, cheeses, the list goes on and on.....The atmosphere is terrific here. People totally enjoying themselves, picking out only the best and then sharing recipes with others. You will see famous chefs shopping alongside the rest of us. This may well be my most favorite spot to be in California

“Not at the pier, at the Third Street Promonade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Wed and Sat morning, even if you are touristing and not cooking, try to visit the Farmers Market. You'll enjoy blocks of real farmers, showing off fruits and veggies that never make it to your supermarket, and never show up in our Midwest town. Stands display multiply types of strawberries, carrots, citrus, and everything which grows in fertile California. All vendors press samples upon you. It's really a pleasure, and there are coffee or breakfast places if you need a break.

“Fresh Produce & Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Every Wednesday & Saturday morning until 1 pm. Wednesday has the largest number of purveyors and is packed with people. I prefer Saturday for that reason. You can sample before you buy. This courtesy has caused me to buy twice as much as I originally intended. No complaints. I ate & enjoyed everything.
Recently, I decided to bring only the amount of money I intended to spend. It worked out very well. When I ran out of cash I had no choice but to stop buying and go home.
In addition to fresh produce, there are baked goods (yum) and pop up restaurants. The latter offers delicious food at below menu prices.
Can't say enough good things about Santa Monica Farmers Market.
