The Ocean Beach Farmers Market is open today, Wednesday, and has been for quite some time. Despite the loosening of pandemic rules in general, the restrictions at the market are still in force – see below. According to Tracy Wagner of the Ocean Beach Mainstreet Association, they have not heard from the city about any changes.

So, the list of restrictions and rules on the OBMA website is still current. Below is what the site currently states:

If you are looking for some fresh produce and a way to support San Diego’s local farmers, look no further! You’ve come to the right place. The Ocean Beach Farmers Market occurs every Wednesday from 4-8 pm and is located on the 4900 Block of Newport Avenue between Cable and Bacon Streets in Ocean Beach.

The Ocean Beach Farmers Market will look a bit different. Think of it as a fresh-air grocery store with a focus on fresh fruits, vegetables, spreads, baked goods, honey, kombucha, flowers and more! There will be a handful of artisan food vendors who will provide to-go food, which you may take home to enjoy. We are proud to be keeping farmers farming and providing Ocean Beach with fresh, high-quality produce and pre-packaged foods.

The market is a one-way market. The entrance is located at Cable Street & Newport Avenue.

Please come prepared with a list, rather than to browse, to make the best use of your time and allow us to move the public through efficiently.
