27 Years Oceanside Farmers Market


July 31, 1992

Featuring certified local and regional produce, baked goods, packaged items and retail, the Oceanside Morning Farmers Market started out this month more than a quarter century ago. The family-friendly market has since grown to a sustainable event averaging 70-75 booths weekly in Downtown Oceanside.
“Because of our beautiful location, this market draws a diverse group of tourists as well as locals,” said Mark Bendixen, 27-year market manager. “Being able to talk to vendors and people makes my job fun, and it’s a joy to participate in something bigger than myself.”

Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Oceanside Farmers Market is rain or shine and is canceled only if the safety of customers and vendors is threatened.
