  • This farmer's market in downtown San Diego has 4 full blocks on both sides filled with vendors of all types selling fresh pressed Olive oil to handmade soaps, fresh picked fruit, unpasteurized Almonds, the best dates I've ever eaten, clothing, Hand made toothpaste and skin care from holistic science and much more. The hand made Jam from Yumeve is phenomenal! Flavors like Peach Thyme and Strawberry Basil! They're only open from 8 to 2 on Saturday only! Bring a suitcase on wheels or your arms will get tired from carrying all the amazing things you will purchase!
  • Great place to visit! I live walking distance from there and stroll thru the market almost every Saturday just to take a look around. Bright and early at 8 am.... when the streets are quiet, the neighborhood and the birds are waking up and vendors are getting ready for the day is really, for me, a great relaxing time to get there.
  • I go to farmers markets all over the country. This is one of the best I have attended. All of The Usual Suspects, plus some truly unusual offerings. One group of young entrepreneurs was selling cookies baked with recycled food products; i.e. they have an arrangement with a fresh-squeezed juice provider and they incorporate their vegetable pulp in all of their cookie recipes. The cookies were very good. However I think their marketing team needs to revisit their description of the product. Perhaps, repurposed food rather than recycled.😎
  • Crowded but overall a nice experience. A lot of variety in vendors. Mostly street parking and a few parking lots. Which means parking sucked. Parking in Little Italy is bad anyway so with a popular Farmers' Market you can imagine how much worse it was. Still, I would go back.
  • This Farmer's Market is huge!! And I love it! There are so many vendors, good food and the produce looks very fresh! Definitely going back, my children are big fans of this place:)
