I recently returned to Santa Monica and bought beautiful punnets of strawberries and apricots. The apricots I had were sweet and very juicy and the strawberries were beautiful. A very popular farmers market packed with plenty of fruit/veg stalls.

Went for Sunday brunch and people watching and wasn't disappointed. It isn't the largest farmers market but they had a great selection of different foods and all obviously super fresh. We settled on omelettes which were excellent but planning on something else next time as it was a tough choice. There is also fresh fruit and veg which looked really good

The Santa Monica Farmers' Market held on Wednesday from 9am to approximately 2pm is a great way to buy fresh produce - tasting before buying assures you that the fruits or vegetables are as you like them. This makes a huge difference in my home cooking! It is always fun to meet the farmers who are properly enthusiastic about their produce and eager to talk about what new crops they are planting. People watching is another attraction. If you go early, popular chefs prowl the stalls for their restaurants, stocking up with cartons of fresh berries, baby carrots, exotic mushrooms and fresh greens. If you are a local, you are sure to run into someone you know.
The management of this market takes very seriously the certifications and methods of their farmers and you can trust that when they say sustainable, they have been tested.

Be very careful where you park! My wife needed some things from the drug store so we parked in the lot. Walked across the street to grab a couple of other things and when we got back to our car it had been towed. The reason given was that we had left that mall and had walked across the street. All of the vehicles in the tow yard that had been towed from this lot (and there were many) had out state plates. People tell us its a racket.

The Farmers market is not worth the hassel.

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.
