Santa Barbara Farmers Markets

    Fresh organic fruit and great local produce await you at Santa Barbara County’s farmers markets. Local farmers and produce sellers love talking about their crops and techniques, and are always willing to answer your questions.  Vendor options range from organic honey, to lavender products, to myriads of fresh fruits and veggies, to a variety of locally grown flowers including the vast array of orchids the neighboring town of Carpinteria is so known for. With a farmer’s market being held at a different location around town almost every day of the week, there is no reason to miss out on the fresh local produce abundant in Santa Barbara.
