Local Ventura Farmers Markets

Local Ventura Farmers Markets are wonderful places to find the freshest meat, dairy, fruits, veggies and more in Ventura County.Farmers markets have become all the rage over the last several years, even though they have been around for decades.  In most places across the country, these local bastions of healthy food are only open for a few months a year, offering “seasonal” fruits and veggies.  Luckily for us here in Southern California, it’s always market season.  Ventura residents have a variety of local Ventura farmers markets to choose from each week as well.

Everything you need for your family’s table that evening can be found here: meat for the main course, veggies for a beautiful side salad, artisan bread with creamy butter and a drizzle of raw honey, something sinfully delicious for dessert and even fresh flowers as a centerpiece.  Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Where: Andria’s Pier, Ventura Harbor (1449 Spinnaker Dr)
When: Saturdays 8am to 11am
Admission: FREE
Contact: (805) 644-0169

You don’t have to sit for hours, waiting for something to snag on your fishing line (unless that’s what you want to do).  Instead, get the freshest catch of the day directly from local Ventura fishermen at Andria’s pier.  They even offer fillet services so you don’t have to do it yourself.

What: Ventura County Certified Farmer’s Market
Where: West Parking Lot of Pacific View Mall (3301 N Main)
When: Wednesdays 9am to 1pm
Admission: FREE
Contact: (805) 529-6266

Bring the kids but leave the pets at your Ventura home.  You’ll love their selection of meats, cheeses, fresh produce, herbs, eggs, nuts, jams, jellies, baked goods and more.  Get a sample of each before you buy.  Take home some ocean fresh fish for your family’s dinner tonight.  Grab some tasty lunch from one of the food vendors served up fresh and piping hot.

Whichever part of Ventura you are in, there are local Ventura farmers markets that can take care of your family’s needs.  Always remember that, when you buy from local vendors, you are helping to boost the Ventura economy while putting less stress on the earth’s resources.  Let’s all do what we can to keep Ventura beautiful and its citizens healthy for generations to come.
