If you combine the year-round perfect temperature of San Diego with California’s burgeoning agricultural industry, open air farmers markets in San Diego are as refreshing and delicious of an experience as it gets.
The other great thing about it is, there’s practically one for every day of the week, and they are sprinkled throughout all of San Diego county. These open air farmers markets typically offer a wide variety of the season’s fruits and vegetables, teas, smoothies, and pasta. Often there’s great food stands too, and it’s easy to pick out everyone’s favorites with the long lines and smells of grilled chicken and vegetables wafting into the air. If you’re not looking for food, fear not, artisan stands offer things such as jewelry, clothing, candles, and artwork – some of favorite include San Diego photographers selling awe-inspiring photos of San Diego sunsets over piers and shores.
These open air farmers markets are dog and bike friendly, and is a great way to explore this delightful city. For a full list of days and locations, visit the official San Diego website’s list here.
