I always like browsing farmers markets and, seeing what produce is in season plus it’s a great way to support local farmers.
One such farmers market is the weekly one held at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. The farmers market is held every Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm in Lot D in front of the Pacific Amphitheater.
The vendors change from time to time but you usually can buy fresh produce, flowers, fish, honey and hot sauce. The farmers market also has lunch options such as burritos, tacos and tamales.
One nice thing about this location is the free parking is plentiful and the ease of getting in and out.
Admission is free like the parking and enter at Gate 3.
