San Pedro’s Farmers Market every Friday on 6th Street

Farmers' markets are one of the oldest forms of direct marketing by small farmers and other vendors. Based on the traditional "mercados" in the Peruvian Andes to the unique street market bazaars in Asia, growers would gather weekly to sell their produce directly to the public. In the last decade here in the US, with the push on to eat healthier foods, they have become a favorite marketing method for many farmers throughout the United States, and a weekly ritual for many thrifty and health conscience shoppers.

Farmers' markets, sometimes called street fairs, are usually made up of a group of farmers and other vendors to sell their products once or twice a week at a designated public place like a park, parking lot or street. Some farmers' markets have live entertainment, crafts, hot food and more. Shopping at a farmers' market is a great way to meet local farmers, socialize with the locals and get fresh, flavorful produce as a bonus.

San Pedro's own Farmers' market in downtown San Pedro gets consistent attendance every week. It's open every Friday from 9 AM to 2 PM and is located on 6th St. between Pacific Ave. and Mesa St. The local market provides farm fresh produce, honey, baked goods, great lunches, crafts, plants, and more!
