Dating back to 1981, the Vista Farmers Market at 325 S. Melrose Drive is the oldest farmers market in the North County area, and one of the longest-running markets in the state of California.

Open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Vista Farmers Market features about 100 vendors each week, a list that includes 53 farmers, 34 food artisans, 18 crafters and a variety of hot food vendors. This market is organized into five micro-markets that focus on specialty foods, international cuisine, art, gardening and the certified farmers market.
