Santa Monica Farmers Market
A favorite of local chefs, you can choose from fresh produce, herbs, lettuces, dried beans, and even emu eggs at the Santa Monica Farmers Market
. According to Saveur
, many chefs consider this farmers market the “heart of LA’s restaurant pulse.” Wednesday mornings are the biggest day at the market, having 75 farmers in attendance.
Studio City Farmers Market
The Studio City Farmers Market
is open on Sundays from 8 am to 2 pm. Located on Ventura Place between Laurel Canyon and Radford Avenue, this market is open rain or shine. This market was started to bring fresh produce to its citizens but has grown into more than just a place to shop. It is now a community gathering place to spend time with friends and families--its motto is even “Making a Difference in Our Community.” With this market, you can go for breakfast and leave with food for lunch and dinner.
