San Diego Farmers Markets
– For Every Day of the Week! –

May 7, 2017

I just love a good farmer’s market! One of my favorite things about San Diego is the healthy and organic atmosphere. If you’re into an all-natural and organic living, you won’t find it too difficult to find the right ingredients to fit your needs. I love waking up early on a Saturday morning and just strolling through the market. I always seem to find something interesting and unique every time I go!



Whether you’re wanting fresh flowers, organic spinach, or hand-crafted jewelry, it’s easy to #shoplocal with the many markets that pop up around the city. If you can’t go one day, don’t worry, in San Diego there’s a farmers market for every day of the week! Here are my favorites:




Little Italy Mercato Farmers Market

8am – 2pm

519 W Cedar Street

San Diego, CA 92101


We are starting the week off with Saturday because this market is the most popular, and my personal favorite! Every Saturday, year-round, rain or shine, the Little Italy market is open. With over 200 tents and live music on the streets, the vendor options are endless and the atmosphere is vibrant. Here you can find a little bit of everything. Come hungry because this market has the best food!



Sample fresh cheeses, almond paste, and flavored hummus and garlic spreads. Then wash it down with unique combinations of kombucha, cold brew, or refreshing juices.



The shopping is also fantastic! You can find the most beautiful jewelry pieces, boutique clothing, or even succulents and plants for your garden.




Hillcrest Farmers Market

9am – 2pm

3960 Normal Street

San Diego, CA 92103



Located in San Diego’s trendy Hillcrest neighborhood, this farmers market is fun and fabulous! This market consists of about 175 vendors, and here you can find a little bit of everything. Definitely come to sample all the yummy food (the pastries are great!) and wash it down with Saigon coffee.



The shopping is a dream as well with so many art and crafts vendors.




Escondido Welk Farmer’s Market

3pm – 7pm

8860 Lawrence Welk Drive

Escondido, CA 92026



Start the week of right with some fresh fruits and veggies! This little market is open every Monday, and is located in beautiful Escondido at Welk Village. It’s a little bit of a remote location, but the market is beautifully tucked amongst the mountains and nature.





Pacific Beach Farmers Market

2pm – 7pm

901 Garnet Avenue

San Diego, CA 92109



Located off Garnet Avenue and close to the beach, this fun farmers market supplies the Pacific Beach community. It’s smaller than other markets however equal in fun since there’s often live music and yummy foods!




Ocean Beach Farmers Market

4pm – 7pm

4900 Newport Avenue

San Diego, CA 92107



Ocean Beach has its own unique vibe, and that same spirit can be felt in its farmers market as well! This funky and hippy-happy beachside community creates a fun atmosphere with tasty meals, homemade arts and crafts, and live music. Probably the most unique farmers market I’ve ever been to. You won’t be disappointed. 🙂





North Park Thursday Market

3pm – 7:30pm

3000 North Park Way

San Diego, CA 92104



Located between 30th Street and Utah, join some 80 plus vendors every Thursday at the North Park market! Here you’ll recognize some of San Diego’s favorites like Bitchin’ Sauce and The Bread Barn Artisan Bread Company. Enjoy this fun neighborhood event which includes live music and a vibrant atmosphere!




La Mesa Farmers Market

2pm – 6pm

Allison Ave & Date Ave

La Mesa, CA 91942



What’s a better way to end the work week than with an afternoon stroll around organic foods and local vendors? A smaller market, but great in quality, I loved the Greek olive oil company with fresh olives and feta.





Over to you! Where’s your favorite farmer’s market?

Surely I'm not the only one who does this? Don't leave me hanging guys, what about you? 😋⠀

  • Rise and grind! 🌟
Good morning world. 🌎 Is anyone else feeling that Monday struggle? Here's some thoughts to start you off on the right foot.⠀
Do you believe that God has bigger plans for you than you have for yourself?⠀
"God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can even ask or imagine."⠀
Ephesians 3:20⠀
This is one of my favorite verses. Why? Because I can imagine quite a bit. And to think, God has even MORE in store for us, then our brains can even comprehend. That is truly unbelievable.⠀
So start dreaming guys. Because whatever you can come up with, rest in knowing that God wants to bless you even more than you can ask of him. 💫
NEW POST today! A few of you have asked about my stay at Tipi Village, so I've put together a post on where it is, what to expect, etc. Check it out, link in bio! 💋

  • "Keep your eyes on the one who is invisible."⠀
Hebrew 11:27⠀
I read this verse the other day and it stopped me in my tracks. It's not exactly mind-blowing advice, but for some reason, it caught me off guard. It's crazy to me how much of our faith is unseen. ⠀
When we are unsure of the chaos around us. Or when we become discouraged from the struggles in our life. Find strength in knowing that we live by faith, and not by sight. ⠀
Also - I'm excited to share a NEW POST from this gorgeous Navajo-land, The Ultimate Guide to Monument Valley. Love to know what you think! (link in bio!) 💋⠀
