Long Beach Farmers' Markets

Today I overdid it (but in a good way) at the Southeast Farmers' Market. I filled two sacks with fingerling potatoes, arugula, heirloom tomatoes, berries, and other fresh produce. My mother bought corn, cauliflower, and also got the trio berry basket of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. We eyed the sunflowers on the way out, but our arms were full. The market is held on Sundays from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. along east Marina Drive. The Uptown Market is held on Thursdays from 3-6:30 p.m. at 46th Street and Atlantic Avenue, and a downtown market is held on Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at CityPlace Center, at Promenade N. and E. 4th Street. Craft vendors and live music add to the fun. For more information about local farmer's markets visit
