State Street Farmers' Market
About State Street Farmers Market
We are open every Wednesday starting at 2:30 pm. The State Street Farmers' Market is a fresh-air grocery store focusing on fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, eggs, nuts, and honey. And yes, even fresh flowers and plants. There are plenty of artisan food vendors to round out your shopping experience, including bread, granola, yogurt, bone broth, kombucha, fudge, cookies, etc.
State Street Farmers' Market is proud to keep farmers farming and provide Carlsbad with fresh, high-quality food and products not easily found in traditional grocery stores. Gift Carlsbad eGift Cards can be purchased directly at www.giftcarlsbad.com.
Longer Spring/Summer Hours Are Here!
Starting Wednesday, March 9th, the market will be open for an additional hour!
Gift Carlsbad At The Market
If you are interested in using your Gift Carlsbad eGift Card at the market, you can certainly do so, but you need to redeem the amount you want to use for Market Money first. Bring your eGift Card, on your phone, to the Information Table at the intersection of Grand Avenue and State Street, and a Carlsbad Village Association staff member can help you. All vendors can accept Market Money, but they cannot redeem eGift Cards at their booth.

There is plenty of parking in the Village. 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. 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! Sometimes you have to hunt a little harder for it.

We are currently at full capacity and do not have room for new vendors.
