Been to many a farmer's market and this one is impressive. Being in mid California it attracts vendors from as far away as Fresno. The fruit and produce were abundant. There is also fish, honey, baked goods and flowers. Very popular with the locals.

The Santa Barbara farmers market is amazing. We stumbled upon it one day. You don't need to live in town to enjoy strolling the booths. Perfect place to put together an impromptu picnic or pick up soaps. A great way to see the local scene.

Friendly people, its located in the middle of downtown so very convenient. The fruit and veggies are very pricey but definitely worth the quality and flavor. Its mostly farmed in SB county so some veggies will depend on its season and weather.

Lots of variety, friendly producers and a selection of musicians. Some seasonal specialities and always a wide variety of staples, plants and flowers. Bring your market basket and fill it up.

We stopped to see how good the farmers market was on Saturday and found a parking spot in front of a place that we'll have to try next time that sold cinnamon rolls. Back to the market, it was a decent size and had everything...More

Offerings here include mussels, avocado, mind blowing citrus varieties. Fresh cheeses, honey, and great veggies. No stalls offering meals. Lots of fun to see locals doing their thing. Very typical southern California.

I was referring to the Saturday morning Downtown market. The Tuesday downtown market which is on State St is open 4-7:30 in the summer and 3 pm to 6:30pm in the winter.
