Ventura Farmers Markets
Local farmers spread out the freshest fruits, vegetables, herbs, honey, eggs, nuts, cheese, olive oil, fruit juices, jams and jellies (among other items) you ever laid taste buds on. Ventura’s Farmers Markets are where Ventura’s chefs go for the freshest products. Why wouldn’t you go too?
Ventura’s Farmers Markets bring the community together to smell, sample, and ruminate upon (you can get a lot of good advice from a hands-in-the-soil farmer) the best fresh products Ventura County has to offer. Ventura’s Farmers’ markets are a fabulous opportunity for visitors to pick up fresh groceries direct from Ventura’s responsible family farmers. The markets are also where many of Ventura’s chefs shop, using farm-fresh products to create otherworldly amazing dishes. Ventura is home to two farmers’ markets — one on Saturday, one on Wednesday — giving you twice the chance to find healthy, tasty delights.
Bring the family and walk through this fun outdoor shopping experience with Ventura County farmers bringing you the freshest, vine and tree-ripened fruits and vegetables. Other fresh items include fresh meat products, herbs, honey, eggs, whole and shelled nuts, cheese, olive oil, fruit juices, jams, jellies, cut flowers, and potted plants, and fresh fish right off the boat. Oh, and did we mention wonderful artisan bakery products, ethnic foods, and tasty hot foods prepared right there?
