Farmers Markets in Huntington Beach
Growers from around Southern California bring the bounty of the land to Surf City USA at neighborhood farmers markets. Strawberries, heirloom tomatoes, and citrus from the region’s fabled groves, plus all sorts of other seasonal delicacies, are available every day of the week.
The Surf City Nights Certified Farmers Market takes place every Tuesday on Main Street in downtown Huntington Beach from 5-9 p.m. The first three blocks of Main Street close to traffic and open to local farmers and artisans offering seasonal fruits and vegetables—organic and non-organic—fresh-cut flowers, local honey, gourmet salt, olive oils and vinegars, baked goods, dried fruit and nuts, and more. Food vendors serve up savory and sweet eats for dinner and dessert, while others offer artworks, clothing, jewelry, potted plants, and more. As a bonus, the family-friendly Surf City Nights Street Fair happens same time, same place, and always makes for an entertaining evening with live music and games for the kids.
The family-run Huntington Beach Farmers Market combines the spirit of a “pop-up” farmers market with the convenience of a neighborhood store. Open daily from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m.-7 p.m. on weekends, the brick-and-mortar market on Gothard Street near Bella Terra stocks local seasonal produce, as well as herbs, spices, teas, meats, cheeses, locally baked goods, bulk items, honeycomb, local eggs, imported treats, Huntington Beach’s own Blue Flame Coffee, and more. It also serves as a mini nursery, with a sprawling outdoor space packed with fruit and flower trees, succulents, cacti, planting mix, and countless stacks of colorful pots. Yes, this one comes with a bonus too: Come hungry and grab a bite from their Mediterranean kitchen, serving up plates like kabobs, koobideh, and falafel, plus sandwiches, stuffed grape leaves, lentil soup, baklava, and a salad bar plating Mediterranean and tabouli salads, hummus, taziki, and baba ghannouj.
