Monterey County Farmers Markets

Earning the name "Salad Bowl of the World," it's no surprise that Monterey County is home to many farmers' markets of varying sizes and specialties. There's one on almost every day of the week, and two farmers' markets on several days of the week! No matter where you are - Pacific GroveCarmel, MontereyMarinaSalinasSoledad or elsewhere in Monterey County - there's a farmers' market near you. See below to find the days and times of Monterey County farmers' markets, as well as links to maps of their locations.

Many of these markets have not only fresh produce but also food booths from local chefs and restaurants serving up Monterey County's finest specialties. Live entertainment from local musicians makes Tuesday's Monterey market a particular local favorite.
