Imagine waking up in the morning, looking outside the window of your Santa Monica beach house rental and thinking about what you’re going to do that day. Maybe you feel like taking a surfing lesson, shop on Montana Avenue or play chess at the International Chess Park. But, if you’re a fan of locally-grown produce and goods, then you should definitely stop by the Santa Monica farmer’s markets.
After it was established in 1981, residents and visitors alike began frequenting the bevy of vendors, which include everything from Bill’s Bees to Adams Olives to Casa Blanca Nursery. On Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, farmers from around the area travel to four different locations to sell their products, including Arizona Avenue, Virginia Avenue and Main Street.
In addition to setting up shop on various days of the week, another bonus feature of these markets is that they offer cooking demonstrations for people who want to enhance their kitchen skills or learn a new recipe.
And on Wednesday, September 19, at the Arizona Avenue location, curious, culinary minds will get the chance to attend a Grass Fed Meat Demo between 10 and 11:30 a.m. At 11:45, shoppers can purchase various cuts of meat and taste sample plates for $7 each.
Whether you prefer arugula, romaine, filet mignon or brisket, you’re won’t find fresher produce than at one of Santa Monica’s year round farmer’s markets.
After you’ve filled your bags with delicious food, come back and cook a meal in a fully furnished Santa Monica short term rental property. Don’t spend your time in Southern California living in cramped quarters. When you rent with Signature Vacation Homes, you’ll feel like you’re returning to a house that was customized to suit your lifestyle and needs.
