San Diego Farmers Markets

Find fresh produce and open-air shopping countywide!

With a year-round growing season and plenty of sunshine, San Diego produces a wealth of farm fresh goods. Area farmers markets are also a great place to find local artisan crafts and mix and mingle with the locals.

Home to Nearly 5,100 Farms

San Diego County has nearly 5,100 farms including full-time, part-time, large, small, conventional, organic, urban, rural, established, and just starting out. Approximately 69% of San Diego County farms are 1-9 acres and more than 40% of the producers are women. San Diego is a leading producer of avocados nationwide, and top crops include nursery, flowers, tomatoes, citrus, poultry, eggs, mushrooms, succulents, and strawberries.

At daily San Diego farmers markets in neighborhoods throughout the county, you can sample fresh-from-the-farm produce from regional farmers and tasty treats from local artisans. Mingle with the locals and meet the farmers while you nibble on sweet, ripe fruit, listen to live music, stroll through colorful booths, and experience San Diego's delicious lifestyle. At some markets, cooks whip up crepes, kettle corn and tamales; vendors sell garlic-stuffed olives, olive oil, cheese, and honey, all prepared locally.

At many farmers markets, you'll also find local artisans selling everything from handmade soaps, jewelry, and art to textiles, pottery, photography, and other crafted treasures.

On Almost Any Given Day

On Tuesday afternoons, cross the bridge into charming Coronado, where beautiful views of San Diego Bay are complemented by a quaint small-town vibe and fresh produce at the Coronado Farmers Market. On Wednesday evenings, farmers congregate at the Ocean Beach Certified Farmers Market where their bounty is paired with live bands, art vendors and friendly locals in the laid-back beach town. On Thursday afternoons, head to one of San Diego's trendiest neighborhoods for the North Park Farmers Market. Here, you'll find artists, innovators and urbane young families shopping for grass-fed beef, pastured chickens and the best produce local farmers have to share.

On Friday mornings, check out the Rancho Bernardo Certified Farmers Market for fresh produce, hot food vendors, baked goods, handmade crafts, and more. During the weekends, hit up the Little Italy Mercato on Saturday mornings and sample "la dolce vita" with a cup of espresso, while you peruse five blocks of local goods ranging from artisan-cured meats and fresh live uni from the water off Point Loma to rainbows of fruits and veggies. On Sunday mornings, choose between the sprawling Hillcrest Farmers Market, filled with food vendors, artisans and farmers, and the seaside La Jolla Open Aire Market to seek out fresh produce, clothing, jewelry cut flowers, and more.

No matter what time of year or what day of the week you visit San Diego, you'll find incredible markets where the region's farmers will tempt your taste buds and share the amazing riches of San Diego's agricultural output.
