#91: Santa Monica Farmer's Market (Main Street)

Photo from seasonalchef

On Sundays, it seems that the whole city is at the Santa Monica Farmer's Market on Main Street. Horsie rides, local produce tents, a raw food vendor, oysters on the 1/2 shell, corn on the cob, tamales, make your own omelet station, kettle corn, hippie clothing... Somehow they manage to cram all of this into a space the size of a small parking lot.

The lawn out front is covered with people happily munching away and listening to the live jazz band. It's beautiful seeing families and friends converge in one place. If you're an early riser, grab your kid, your dog, your significant other, and get ready for a one of a kind experience!


  1. Two places to add to your list:
    - San Sylmar (
    - UCLA Mathias Botanical Garden (

    I love your list so far!


  2. Thanks for the tips Renee. I have yet to try either of those, so I've added them to my list for 2010. I've never even heard of the Nethercutt collection--it looks fascinating. I can't wait to go!
