Things To Know Before You Go
Make sure to take note of the following before heading over to a night of food and fun:
Hours: The Farmer's Market is from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. We recommend getting there early before the crowds.
Keep Fido at home. No pets are allowed at the Farmer's Market - only service animals can accompany their owners. This is due to a City Ordinance.
Higuera Street. This is the street the Farmer's Market is held on.
Parking: We highly recommend taking advantage of the Bicycle Valet at the Farmer's Market to avoid a busy car parking experience. For those driving, there are parking lots that offer free parking for the first hour, and there is side street parking free of charge. Keep an eye out for any signs that say "No Parking" past 5:30 p.m.
