  • From Beverly Hills to Brentwood: Best Farmers Markets




Discover the best farmers markets in the area 

From fresh pumpkins to squash, fall is a prime time to explore neighborhood farmers markets. Scout for those heirloom seasonals and enjoy the local community at these four locations.


Beverly Hills 

With a farmers market every Sunday that features a petting zoo and pony rides, the Beverly Hills Farmers Market offers more than just seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables (although they have those too!). Yearly events span from pie-baking contests to pickle fests to their monthly e-waste drive and children’s story-time readings, promising plenty of activities and specialties that keep this farmers market fresh, week after week. Located off of Santa Monica Boulevard between 3rd Street and the Civic Center. 






Westwood 

The Westwood Village Farmers’ Market showcases goods from local farmers and ranchers and is a place where community organizations gather and host pop-up booths. Since it’s in the heart of LA’s very own college town, there are some UCLA-centric booths. But there are also local businesses, artisans selling handmade crafts, pressed juices, kettle corn, tamales, and farm-fresh flowers and foods. Every Thursday from noon to 6 p.m., swing by the farmers market at 1031 Broxton Avenue; with two hours of free parking in the Broxton lot, there’s really no excuse for not checking this one out. 









Century City 

On Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. come out and enjoy the Century City Farmers Market at 10100 Santa Monica Boulevard. With farm-fresh eggs, baked goods, gourmet eats, international treats, and all the seasonal favorites, this farmers market has something for everyone. For shoppers or those out enjoying their lunch break at the pupusa truck, there’s only one place to be on Thursdays in Century City.




Brentwood 

Every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. the Brentwood Farmers’ Market is held at S Gretna Green Way and San Vicente Boulevard. The street is closed to cars, to make way for the pop-up shops, booths, and seasonal-produce stands. With local honey, mango boba tea, pumpkin bread, sun-dried-tomato hummus, artisan soaps, and all of the farm-fresh veggies you can think of, this “high-scale, low-key” event perfectly matches the Brentwood neighborhood vibe.  


It seems every season has its farmers market highlights here in Southern California, but the fall harvest is especially bountiful.
