The City of Santa Monica is working closely with the Department of Public Health to monitor COVID-19 and local impacts.

As an essential service, the Farmers Markets will REMAIN OPEN as an option for shoppers to continue having access to fresh produce in an open setting while maximizing social distancing. The market's continuation of service will also minimize economic impacts to participating small family farmers, so they remain able to serve the market community in the months and years to come. 

Market Hand Washing Options

Additional options for hand washing stations are available throughout each market in addition to plumbed restrooms.
