The beautiful city of Santa Barbara, and its charming neighboring towns of Montecito, Carpinteria, and Goleta, offer residents a plethora of fun activities year round! Known for its love of all things epicurean, Santa Barbara fun often includes farm-to-table food. One of our favorite ways to enjoy this incredible seaside community is by exploring the farmers markets, which can be found seven days a week in various parts of town, to discover the fresh and delicious offerings from the area’s local farmers, colorful flowers and delightful crafts!
Here in Montecito, Friday fun usually begins with a trip to the travelling farmers market on Coast Village Road, which rotates locations along the quaint street each week. Families and friends in the area enjoy starting their weekend with a stroll through the market, sampling fresh fruits and veggies, gourmet artisan cheese selections, mouth-watering goodies like freshly made hummus and so much more, all while taking in the crisp ocean air and warm Santa Barbara sun!
