I just love the San Diego farmers markets! 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 difficult to find the right ingredients to fit your needs. I love waking up early on a Saturday morning and strolling through the San Diego farmers markets. No matter which one I go to, I always seem to find something interesting and unique!

 SATURDAY

Little Italy Mercato Farmers Market

Hours: 8am – 2pm

Location: 519 W Cedar Street San Diego, CA 92101

We are starting the week off with Saturday because the Little Italy Mercato Farmers 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!

FRIDAY

La Mesa Farmers Market

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