When traveling on the California Coast a good way to get to know the city or neighborhood where you are staying is to visit the local farmers markets. We have scoured the web to find the best farmers markets near the coastal cities in Northern and Southern California. Almost all of these are certified farmers markets (CFM) which means you are getting the best produce and other local products you can buy.

Hours of the farmers markets vary by season and change regularly so we do not provide them here. It’s best to find farmers markets near your town, note the days they are open, and then check the hours on their websites.
