Started in 1994, the State Street Farmers' Market takes place in downtown Carlsbad every Wednesday. Enjoy fresh organic produce, locally prepared foods, handmade crafts, and live entertainment in the heart of Carlsbad Village on State St. between Carlsbad Village Dr. and Grand Ave. We offer approximately 18 produce vendors, 25 packaged specialty food vendors, six prepared/cooked food vendors, and two to four crafters at every market.
Spring/Summer Hours: March 13, 2019 through October 30, 2019 (3 PM - 7 PM)
Fall/Winter Hours: November 6, 2019 through March 4, 2020 (3 PM - 6 PM)
Visit us on Facebook for timely market information! Connect with us on Instagram for great photos and videos and meet our vendors.
We are currently at full capacity and do not have room for new vendors. However, if you are a food vendor (produce, hot/cold foods or artisan packaged foods) and would like to be considered if booth space becomes available, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your product offering and where you are currently selling. Food/produce vendors only, please. No commercial or craft vendors.
If you are a Carlsbad-based (business license in Carlsbad) service-oriented company (insurance, chiropractic, real estate, etc.) and would like to promote your business, its services, etc., to local customers, market sponsorships are available. Please contact Christine at email@example.com for more information.
There is plenty of parking in the Village. Sometimes you have to hunt a little harder for it. There are several public lots within one to two blocks of the market. Public parking lots are located on Roosevelt Street, State Street (south of Carlsbad Village Drive), and behind the Coaster Station. And, don't forget that State Street, between Grand Avenue and Carlsbad Village Drive, must be cleared of all cars starting at 1 pm to make room for the Farmers' Market. Thank you for your cooperation!
On Wednesday, September 25, 2019 the State Street Farmers' Market, in collaboration with the Compass Restaurant, is pleased to be bringing another Farm to Table experience to Carlsbad Village diners. For $70 per person, you will enjoy a five-course meal prepared by Chef Brad at the Compass restaurant featuring items from the State Street Farmers' Market. You will also tour the market with the chef and market manager and learn a bit about the importance of the farm-to-table movement! Start your meal with an amuse bouche (small bite), followed by a variety of delightful plates, and end with a show-stopping dessert. Chef Brad even finds a way to incorporate farmers' market goodies into an amazing specialty cocktail. The market tour starts at 6:00pm and dinner follows at 6:30pm. Tickets are limited and need to be purchased in advance. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat today!
