    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).

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

    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.

    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
