The Wednesday Market opened in Santa Monica's downtown retail district with the modest goals of providing reasonably priced, high quality produce to the city's population, and bringing more foot traffic into the area. The market met with instant success in its first year. Now, more than twenty years later, it's widely recognized as one of the largest and most diverse growers-only CFM's in the state. Some nine thousands food shoppers every week, and many of Los Angeles' best known chefs and restaurants, are keyed to the seasonal rhythms of the Wednesday Market. It's hardly an exaggeration to say, at mid-week in the heart of the city the mother of markets comes to town. Whether you're looking for a common, exotic or experimental variety of fruit or vegetable, this market is a treasure trove of agricultural diversity.
