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.
