Farmer's Markets, west side

Visting my son 12/26 - 1/1. I LOVE to explore Farmer's Markets.
Which one(s) are your favorites.
He is living in Marina del Rey, so looking for something not terribly far away.
thanks, Susan

      The Wednesday Santa Monica and Sunday Hollywood are the best.

    2. no need to go to Hollywood - the Santa Monica market is nearby, and it's *amazing.*

        There seem to be four Santa Monica markets: one on Wed, two on Sat at different locations, and Sunday. Which do you think is the best?

          Wednesday is the best and the biggest.

            The Saturday Promenade market is also very good, although can't compare to the Wednesday market at the Promenade. I sometimes go to the Sunday one on Main street if I miss the other two and it'll do in a pinch, but has only a small fraction of the produce and it mostly prepared food booths and craft vendors.
