    I love our Santa Monica farmers markets!
    How many towns do you know that have 3 farmers markets a week? Wednesday and Saturday at 3rd. Street & Arizona, (the Promenade) from 8:30am-1:30pm where all the Chefs Shop for their restaurants! There is an incredible array of so many organic veggies. Wednesday is a treasure trove with the biggest selection, then on Sunday’s at the Heritage Museum located at 2640 Main Street from 9:30am-1:30pm, this one is really the most fun with live music and plenty of fresh made foods can be purchased from a really nice selection of vendors with lots of good eats at inexpensive prices and there are lots of people sprawled out on the lawn eating and having a great time! It’s really cool but then again what else would you expect, it’s Santa Monica beach!
