Farmers’ markets are a way of life for Los Angeles residents, and have been since even before it was cool.

Thanks to the year-round perfect weather in Southern California, Los Angeles has year-round Farmers Markets where home chefs and restaurant suppliers like to pick up the freshest produce available.
Farmers markets are like the Los Angeles version of the European town square, where you shop for dinner, chat with farmers’ and even grab a coffee and a pastry with friends. To assist you we’ve created a list of the best farmers markets in Los Angeles.
Sometimes you’re looking for a Farmers’ Market in your neighborhood, and sometimes you want to know which Farmers’ Market is open on which day of the week. So we have the information for you both ways.
