Food & Drink

Ventura’s dining scene continues to thrive, in thanks to incredible Artisan chefs setting up eateries that showcase Ventura’s abundance of fresh locally caught seafood, organic fruits and produce, and eclectic fare. With wine country in our backyard, acres, and acres of fresh crops grown locally, and multi-cultural influences, it’s no wonder Ventura’s dining scene continues to expand and cook up mouth-watering dishes.

Ventura is also home to many breweries, with more on the horizon. Located in Downtown Ventura, Anacapa Brewery Company, opened its doors 15 years ago, brewing and serving beers that are crafted inside of the restaurant.

Award-winning wineries with spacious tasting rooms, as well as distilleries, using delicious, fresh, and organic local ingredients.

Ventura’s Farmers’ markets are a great opportunity for both, visitors and locals, to pick up fresh groceries directly from responsible family farmers. It also allows our local chefs to use incredible ingredients to create amazing dishes. Ventura is the home of two markets on separate days giving people plenty of time to indulge in healthy delights.
