It’s pretty awesome,and so many kiosks of food, flowers and arts/crafts, but it’s a bit pricy. Today was fairly crowded so you had to que up to get into the sections, but the lines moved quite fast
Worth the time if you can find a parking spot!

This is apparently a new concept in dining as I've had the same thing in Tampa. Large and open areas serving a mix of cuisines all from nearby farms and purveyors. A fun evening out. Little Italy is a great place for a visitor.

Looked at our hotel window to see that this was on. Four blocks with mainly food. Bought some beer flavoured beef jerky. Nice exposure to the different local produce in San Diego. Nice way to kill some time.

We visited the market on Wednesday, it was cold and rainy day, there were few vendors and very few people shopping because of the “ bad” weather. There was a sign in the road with instruction not to park in some area of the road on Saturday as it’s used for the vendors which indicate that there are more vendors on Saturday.

Nice place to spend some time and buy some local fresh vegetables, fruits, or to have some snacks.

If you are visiting Little Italy in San Diego, be sure to time your visit for the Saturday’s farmers market. There were so many vendors with a variety of gifts to bring home and the best produce and fruits to snack on during your trip. We had so much fun. The food was amazing and the people very friendly. One of my favorite markets

Fun way to spend a Saturday morning. Lots of free food samples and interesting wares to examine. People watching was good, but dog watching was even better. Musicians weren’t great, but they were tolerable.

I went to this Farmers Market a few months ago and was so impressed with it I wanted to bring my family during our Thanksgiving vacation.
The atmosphere is so vibrant and fun, the vendors and samples are plentiful.
I always get some wonderful photos of the market with the ocean as a backdrop, super pretty.
One of our favorite vendors is Aloha Spreads, oh my goodness, the coconut peanut butter is to die for. Strongly suggest you try it when you visit this market. The hummus, kombucha drinks, food trucks choices, it’s all so very good.
Going to this Farmers Market was one of the highlights of our trip and I look forward to returning, I may need an extra suitcase for all the goodies I buy.

What a great way to spend your morning.
Come early and enjoy the market.

There is a variety of vendors that offer anything you will need.

Too bad i do not live here to buy tons of items.

Take your time and enjoy, get some fresh coffee or pastries.

Get some flowers or any other item,

A must visit.
