Fresh vegetables at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market

All four Santa Monica markets are Certified Farmers' Markets (CFMs). The markets are organized and managed by city and support year-round access to fresh, seasonal produce for an estimated 900,000 shoppers every year. The markets host a variety of special and educational events throughout the year. Some of these programs include:

  • The "Lunch with a Chef Program" feauturing weekly cooking demonstrations hosted by chefs from some of the area's finest restaurants.
  • Field trips with local schools. During presentations of market produce, the students have a chance to smell, touch and taste all that the market offers.
  • Seasonal festivals include Cinco de Mayo in May, Melon Mania in July and the All-You-Can-Carry Pumpkin Patch in October.

The Sunday Main Street Farmers’ Market is a zero waste event, providing the community with fresh, locally-grown organic food. There is also a bike valet offered at the market to promote and encourage bicycling as an alternative means of transportation to the market.
