    The market has temporarily relocated to W. Cedar Street between Kettner Blvd. and Front St. due to construction on Date St. Still great, just one block south!

    San Diego's largest Farmers' Market spans more than 5 city blocks. Enjoy fresh food, crafts, & live music every Saturday from 8AM-2PM. Crêpes are popular but the line moves quickly!

    Love to do this every Saturday AM in Little Italy (now on Cedar St). Bring your reusable shoppers and cash. They say "no dogs," but they're everywhere (and adorable).

  • TOM C.

    Pick up a Mercato shopping bag to carry your stuff and re-use

    Awesome farmer's market but really smells like urine (probably from all the dogs?) everywhere! They should really do something about it.

    Highly recommend the strawberry stand near Date and India. The ladies have the BEST berries there.

    Meghan Murray · January 12, 2014

    Orange coffee truck, oysters, Carmel sauce and pastured eggs are some of my favorites.

    The side streets add to the ambiance and cultural feel here. Beautiful church and reminds me if my childhood.

    If you can get past the crowding as you move street to street, it's got wonderful produce, flowers, and vender choices.

    Parking is tough. Best bet is to park a couple blocks away at a parking lot and walk there. · December 15, 2012

    Best place to find pastured meats

    Nothing is better than a Sunday morning farmers market in the heart of Little Italy. Check out the local vendors then stroll over to a nearby restaurant for a lunch and a glass of wine. -Our LJ Admin

    This market is great but seeing people open & devour sea urchins in the street is disgusting. I wish the organizers wouldn't put them right next to the vegans. #notfunny #gross #ruiningmyappetite

    GreenFix makes a great green smoothie.

    One of THE best in San Diego! Look for the Crepes on the corner the Mercato, super delicious. Line may be long, but it moves quite fast.
