State Street Farmers' Market

3/25/20 - We are currently closed due to COVID-19. Due to the public nature of the State Street Farmers' Market, where we cannot provide one entrance and one exit to better monitor the flow of foot traffic, we are not re-opening the Farmers' Market until we can do so while complying with proper physical distancing and limiting the crowd size to be as safe as possible. We are currently working on a plan and have the full support of our City to re-open when we both feel it is safe and socially responsible to do so while the "stay at home" order is still in place. We are eager to get our vendors and staff back to work but want to do so safely. Thank you for your continued patience and support.

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.

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 with your product offering and where you are currently selling. Food/produce vendors only, please. No commercial or craft vendors.

Market Sponsorships Available

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 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!

Shop With The Chef Dinners

On Wednesday evenings in June, July, August and September 2020 the State Street Farmers' Market, in collaboration with Village restaurants, is pleased to bring an amazing Farm to Table experience to Carlsbad Village diners. For $70 per person, you will enjoy a five-course meal 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. You will also be treated to a 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 for more information starting Spring 2020.
