The largest grower-only Certified Farmers Market in Southern California and a favorite for local chefs

 

8:00am - 1:00pm
Arizona Ave @ 2nd Street

 

Established July 1981
Market Manager:  Jaclyn Rivera-Krouse
Farmers:  85

 

Established in 1981, the Wednesday Market opened in Santa Monica's downtown retail district with the modest goals of providing reasonably priced, high quality produce to the city's population, and bringing more foot traffic into the area. The market met with instant success and now hosts over 85 farmers weekly and is widely recognized as one of the largest and most diverse grower-only Certified Farmers Markets in the state. Some nine thousands food shoppers every week, and many of Los Angeles' best known chefs and restaurants, are keyed into the seasonal rhythms of the Wednesday Market. Whether you're looking for a common, exotic or experimental variety of fruit or vegetable, this market is a treasure trove of seasonal agricultural diversity.
