Updated, on average, twice a month, this is the most up-to-date farmers market page in San Diego County. Around 50 certified farmers' markets convene each week in the greater San Diego area, Monday through Sunday. Our mild mediterranean climate and 360+ organic farms means there is an abundance of fresh, local produce year round. We are also blessed with locally raised beef, chicken, turkey and other fowl, pork, lamb, rabbit, local fish and shellfish, cheese, wine (much of it made with estate grown grapes), and soon we'll have an organic dairy and locally made cheese! (Last updated February 9, 2017. Corrections and additions welcomed. Send information to john@ediblesandiego.com and use subject heading "farmers markets.")
