Shop Local at Carlsbad, Oceanside & Encinitas Farmers’ Markets

We all love going on vacation! And we encourage North County San Diego vacationers to shop locally during their next visit. One of the best ways to shop local and support the local community is to visit the local farmers’ markets selling anything from produce to handmade crafts. You can find these items and more at the Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Encinitas farmers’ markets. The mild California climate allows small family farms to sell local produce to the community year-round, delivering freshness you can’t find anywhere else. Beachfront Only Vacation Rentals offers properties in all three North County communities, so you can easily access these fantastic markets during your getaway.
