A great way to spend a Sunday morning

Markets then brunch anyone? Yes the answer is yes. Live music, fresh organic food, water melon slushies. It's a lovely way to start the morning.

We drove here from Carlsbad and it took about an hour on a Sunday. Parking was easy to find, the market was full of friendly people, great product, eggs and food. There wasn't anything I couldn't find here. They offer live music with plenty of seating under tents which is great in a rainy day or to get in the... More

Great fresh produce and flowers. It's easy to get to and close to hotels. There was lots of variety of fruits and vegetables and we bought some yummy dates.

Visited on a Wednesday morning and spent some time perusing their stalls. Ended up buying some strawberries which ended up being the most delicious strawberries we had ever tasted! We also got some tasty but expensive apples as well as blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.

Santa Monica's Farmers Markets are the best on the Westside. Downtown (Wednesday & Saturdays) has the most vendors with a large variety, Pico (Saturday) is convenient to the east side of town & Main Street (Sunday) is family friendly and has acozy community feeling.

We visited the Santa Monica farmer's market last Sunday. It is very centrally located; we walked along the beach to get there. There was a wonderful assortment of vegetables, baked goods, and vendors selling coffee and breakfast foods. We grabbed some breakfast, sat under a tent and listened to a still drum band. A great way to start a day.

I've been to a lot of Farmer's Markets and I rate the Santa Monica one as one of the best. The produce is truly fresh and high quality, there are blocks and blocks of vendors, and there is something for everyone there.... not just produce! In addition, it is part of Third Street in Santa Monica and close to the... More

This is such a fun atmosphere! There is no better way to bring local farmers together with the community of Santa Monica and the neighborhoods around this beach city. There's plenty of amazing food, plenty of amazing crafts for kids and even pony rides. You can invite all your friends for a Farmer's Market Brunch and set up right there... More

I ran in to this on my last trip. I grazed through the stands and enjoyed all of the fresh options. It's a great place to stroll and see the local fresh offerings.

My review of the Santa Monica Farmers Market hasn’t really changed a lot from my one two years ago. The produce stalls are just okay and it’s the entertainment extras that bring the place alive. I wouldn’t go out of your way for a visit, but find yourself in the area on a Sunday lunchtime and I would definitely stop... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
