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.
And join us the first Wednesday of each month for a very special live cooking demonstration at the top of the hour at 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm by Chef Brad Thomas from the Compass Restaurant, complete with samples, recipes, and shopping list.
Hours of Operation
From March 15, 2023 through November 1, 2023, the market will be open from 2:30pm to 7:00pm.
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. Gift Carlsbad eGift Cards can be purchased directly at www.giftcarlsbad.com.
