About the Market
Answers to some frequently asked questions.
You’ll find fresh, seasonal produce from more than 20 regional growers selected by our partners at the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association. There are also several hot food options for a quick, yummy lunch. You can also shop at special artisan vendors booths as well.
We love your pets, however, California law prohibits them in the food section at the market unless they are certified service animals. If you bring your pet to the market (allowed in the artisan area), please bring a friend to walk them on the adjacent sidewalk and/or let them play in the dog park a block away.
We like to think everything about the Market is pretty special. But if you are looking for deals on fresh, local fruits, vegetables and other goodies, look no further.
