Ken Malloy Park
Like so many L.A. farmers market, the best part about the market is it’s cool location – & the Harbor City Farmers Market is no exception.
Couple your trip with a fun visit to the family-friendly Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Park – with trails, jogging paths, playgrounds, & more – all stretched along a nice lake with piers to sit & relax.
It’s totally right across the street from the market, both of them on the corners of Pacific Coast Highway & Vermont.
This is the only market in the area on Wednesdays mornings, & a great community farmers market with farm-fresh produce, packaged goodies, a local nursery, & plenty of tasty drink & food options to grab lunch.
The market has a chill & easy-going vibe, with live acoustic music playing in the corner & a few spots to sit-down & people-watch.
Explore the area – it’s pretty fun
Of course there’s the beaches, boardwalks, & bistros all throughout the South Bay – but explore a little & a trip to Ken Malloy & the farmers market is a pretty fun day.
Did we mention?
The Harbor City Farmers Market, in partnership with Hunger Action Los Angeles, offers the Market Match program which provides bonus dollar for fresh produce at the market for anyone receiving CalFresh/EBT, WIC, Social Security Disability, or Social Security Insurance (benefits).
The goal of the program is to make fresh fruits & vegetables available for young families, the elderly, & those with limited access to healthy food – & in turn support local, California family-farms.
