My favroite FM in San Diego. Some of my favorites: Papa Jim's honey & the gyro's are so delicious. So many great vendors and foods to try!

I've been here twice and love it!
Our favorite thing to eat here is the live sea urchin from the corner seafood booth. Only $9 and you get a wiggling urchin to spoon out of. SO DELICIOUS and FRESH!
3 for $5 macarons across the seafood booth are also a pretty good deal TOO because they're like 3 bite macarons! Right amount of chewiness but I'd definitely get just citrus/lemon ones next time as I tried Blueberry, Citrus, and Lemon. I tend to like the tart flavors :) Blueberry had chocolate in between so it deterred it a bit.
Pineapple/mango fresh juice is also great here along with the fresh cheeses you can sample :D
Parking was bit of a pain, but we can spend a couple hours here just slowly browsing, sampling, and eating so it's definitely worth it!
Can't wait to come back to SD and visit here after hiking again :)

One of my absolute most favorite places to go in all of San Diego!! I love, love, LOVE going to this farmers market every Sunday morning. I make sure to start every Sunday with a trip to the farmer's market (it helps that I live just blocks away), otherwise my day just isn't right.
Oh farmer's market, how do I count the ways I love thee? Fresh, organic produce; delicious sweet treats; every flavor hummus imaginable; stunning flower arrangements; every type of ethnic cuisine you can imagine; awesome artwork; craftsmen; fabulous jewelry; fresh squeezed green juices; on and on and on...
Go to pick up fresh produce. Go to support local farmers and the community. Go for lunch. Go to taste everything. Go to look at everything. Go. Just GO!
