TripSavvy's editorial guidelines Updated on 06/26/19 Share Pin Email National City Farmers' Market Farmers' markets be found almost every day of the week in San Diego County all through the year thanks to the nice weather, and if it's a certified farmers' market, the State of California ensures that the produce is being sold by the grower, is grown in California and meets all California quality standards. Any day except Monday, you’ll find an outdoor farmers' market operating in a nearby neighborhood or city. Although many of the growers frequent the same various markets, each market is unique in that they take on the characteristics of their neighborhood. The outdoor stalls and farmers faces may sometimes be the same (some farms go to more than one farmer's market in San Diego), but the ambiance is different at each market. Grab a bunch of fresh, colorful flowers along with other office workers at the Horton Square market downtown. Take in the stunning bayside view while picking up fresh green beans in Coronado. Hit the boardwalk after grabbing some fresh tomatoes in Pacific Beach. A basket of fresh strawberries and antiques go well together while in La Mesa village. The eclectic hustle and bustle of Hillcrest are almost as attractive as the exotic persimmons and cherimoyas. And you can say you went shopping in La Jolla and came home with bags of purchases! From the oldest to the newest, here’s a list of the countywide certified farmer's markets.
