I absolutely love the Wednesday Farmers' Market. When I used to work down the street, I would go every week and usually end up buying way too much delicous fresh fruit and veg. Now I go there for specific things or during the seasons for my favorite fruits. Try the Charlynne melons during the summer months, or white peaches. My absolute favorite booth is Bezian's Sourdough. Trust me- you have never tried sourdough like this before. Parking tends to get harder as the morning goes on, so get there early. First 90 minutes free in most of the SM lots.

A mainstay in Santa Monica. This is a great place to head for Sunday brunch. You can sit outside on the grass beneath a shady tree or on one of the tables, eat mouth watering buttermilk pancakes, huge home-made omelettes or fresh tamales, and even ride a pony if you are so inclined. They also have some of the best organic produce in the world! They usually have a live band performing as well.Recommended for:

The Santa Monica Farmer's Market is a perfect stop for Sunday morning breakfast. Besides vegetables & flowers, a large collection of tasty food stalls offering crepes, pastries, Mexican dishes and artisan coffee can be explored onsite. A blanket is recommended as there is a nice loan to picnic while enjoying a meal.

Come here on a Saturday morning and you can smell all the fresh fruits and veggies. All the produce is beautiful, and you might even find some unique things like golden or black raspberries. This is also one of the few places that carry Carlsbad Aqua Farm oysters. Get them on the half shell right at the stand or buy a dozen to take home to shuck yourself.

Wow. There is nothing like the atmosphere of the place. In addition to the fresh produce and pony rides for the kids, there are booths where you can get great omelets, waffles, burritos, etc. Then you find a seat on the lawn and enjoy. Finally pack up some great stuff to take home.Recommended for:

On Main and Ocean Park - this is the best thing to do on a Sunday morning. Especially with kids. The have a nice lawn and also lots of tables to enjoy their very good and huge choice of breakfast/brunch. There are live bands playing there is some kids entertainment (zoo, ponys, ballons) Not always the same though. The fresh food you can buy is of course wonderful too. Do not miss to by the best Tomatoes in the world in summer/fall time.Recommended for:

Not just fresh produce! It's like a harvest fair every Sunday. There are food booths, artists, entertainers, and just world-class people watching. It's a great place for breakfast or brunch, and you can take your food over to the beach if you can't find a seat.Recommended for:

Stock the kitchen with California farm fresh produce. Walk or park in the parking garages on 2nd Street between Wilshire and Arizona. Bring your own bag and cash. Here you will find every seasonally grown fruit and vegetable at your fingertips.

I come here occasionally to buy oysters from Carlsbad aquafarms. They're about as fresh as you can get 'em and you can either have them shucked on the spot for immediate consumption or you can take them home and shuck them yourself, a great deal either way.

LA has a ton of great farmers markets and unfortunately Santa Monica's is only average in comparison. The produce is slightly more expensive and the selection of produce is a lot less diverse than other farmers markets. But what the farmers market lacks in produce in makes up for in convenience and presentation.

A little pricier than the other markets, the Farmers' Market on Arizona and Third Street Promenade features lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, dried fruits, baked goods, cheese, etc. If you're lucky, the Border Grill Truck will be there selling delicious tacos and their special sweet corn tamale in a cone with creme fraiche.
