The Carlsbad Village Farmers' Markets are held on Saturdays and Wednesdays from 1-5pm. There are many wonderful produce, eggs, honey, flowers, and plants growers, as well as, homestyle food vendors and local craft artisans. There is a focus on organic foods and all are locally grown, or crafted, and all growers are certified by the Dept. of Agriculture. Most vendors offer free samples of their products.

In addition, there are members of the Carlsbad Village Busines Association offering information and giveaways. The Farmers' Market Manager is a wealth of information about the local attractions and locations.

They have 4 seasonal festivals a year, during the regular hours of the markets. Spring - "Strawberry Festival" 3rd week in April, Summer - "Summer Sensations Festival" 3rd week in July, Autumn - "Autumn Harvest Festival" third week in October, Winter - "Winter Wonderland Festival" third week in December. Special foods, decor, products and fun for the whole family surround the theme of each event.
