State Street Farmers' Market
About State Street Farmers Market
We are open every Wednesday, per County Health guidelines. 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 too to round out your shopping experience, including bread, granola, yogurt, bone broth, kombucha, fudge, cookies, and more.
State Street Farmers' Market is proud to be keeping farmers farming and providing Carlsbad with fresh, high-quality food and products not easily found in traditional grocery stores.
Hot Food Vendors
Every Wednesday, the following four hot food vendors will be serving up their amazing food:
Masala Cottage (Indian) | Rafikiz (Kenyan) | Thai Style (Thai) | House of Bao (Dumplings)
In addition, a fifth vendor will join every week as follows:
May 26th - Buddha Foods (Vegan)
June 2nd - Lady G's Canteen (Filipino)
June 9th - Buddha Foods (Vegan)
June 16th - Emilio's Paella (Spanish Paella)
What's New & What is Different?
Our "new" market is smaller compared to the years past, focusing on certified growers and limited packaged foods to provide a safe way to shop for the highest quality and freshest food possible. In cooperation with the current County health orders, please continue to observe social distancing while shopping and in any line in the market. Please wear a mask. Hand sanitizer will be available for your use. Live music will be gone for a while, as will our eating area to eliminate congregating. Again, think of this as an open-air grocery store for now where you can find amazing products in a quick and efficient outdoor venue.
Updated Shopper’s Guidelines
- All attendees must be wearing a face mask per public health order; volunteers are on hand with masks if you do not have one
- Thank you for observing 6 feet of social/physical distancing while shopping
- Respect any caution tape or marks on the ground to guarantee physical distancing while at the market
- Volunteers and staff are monitoring foot traffic flow to provide room for social distancing; please follow their instructions
- Please refrain from touching produce or products and let the vendors help you with your selections
To help us make this market as successful as possible, please help us by following the rules. Our goal is to safely and efficiently move people through the market to everyone's benefit.

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. 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!

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