Farmers Market Report: Mar Vista

Mar Vista Farmers Market

Sundays, rain or shine
Grandview Blvd. at Venice Blvd.

From its inception, the Mar Vista Farmers Market was supposed to be more than a farmers market. Both the local businesses and the the neighborhood envisioned it as a more of a 'town square'. The first Mar Vista Farmers Market was on August 6, 2006, and since then with six yearly festivals, a monthly locally produced art and crafts show, weekly kids' activities, on top of the local farmers and prepared food booths, that is exactly what it has become. With a focus on sustainability and community, the Mar Vista Farmers Market is a Sunday favorite.

J&R Organics is gearing up for the holidays...

with beautiful handmade wreaths, flowers and great produce.

This last weekend, they had a Latka Party and a Klezmer band, Klezmer Juice.

 Atkins Nursery from Fallbrook had a great selection of California winter fruit...

and citrus trees! That would be a lovely gift.

County Line Harvest had greens and a rainbow of vegetables...

..including carrots, radishes, and..


Every weekend, someone from the sustainable community is invited to the 'Green Tent'.
