Farmers Markets in North San Diego County
Farmers Markets are a great way to find fresh fruits and vegetables every week, and to support the local farming community. But farmers markets have evolved to offer so much more than fruits and vegetable, including a range of artisanal foods (meats, cheeses, specialty juices, pastries/cakes/pies, honey), hot and cold foods, and more depending on the particular market and the size.
The farmers markets here in SoCal operate year round, given our weather, with offerings varying depending on the season and availability.
