North Park Main Street proudly presents the weekly North Park Thursday Market! Join us every Thursday, year-round, from 3pm – 7:30pm on three blocks of North Park Way, from 30th Street to Utah, for your neighborhood’s Certified Farmers’ Market and more!
Starting at 3000 North Park Way, farmers and vendors fill more than 90 tents with their locally grown produce, artisan grocery items, prepared foods and hand-crafted goods every Thursday, rain-or-shine, at this family-friendly community event. Eat dinner, mingle with your neighbors and enjoy the outdoor setting.
Spot your favorites like J R Organics Farm, Smit Farms, Valdivia Farm, Hopkins AG Almonds and Rodney Kawano Farm. Choose local meat and eggs from from Da Le Ranch and Three Sons Farm. Find Bitchin’ Sauce, GreenFix Organic Smoothie, unique sauces from The Baby Clydesdale and Kitchens for Good, Witt Pickles, spices from Smij Spicery and baked goods from The Bread Bar and Maya’s cookies. Enjoy North Park’s only Indian food at Masala Cottage, or dine on Gourmet Tamales, Sabor Piri Piri’s tastes of Africa or other innovative prepared foods. Visit rotating San Diego-made crafters and explore the SD Vintage Flea section.
Local chefs regularly present cooking demonstrations with tasting experiences for customers. Enjoy delicious recipes from Chef Matt Gordon of Urban Solace Restaurant, Chef Rich Sweeney of Waypoint Public, Chef Joanne Sherif of Cardamom Cafe and Bakery, Chef Abe Botello of West Coast Tavern and many more. Recognize chefs from restaurants within walking distance of the North Park Thursday Market and follow them to local gems like Saiko Sushi and Tribute Pizza where they use what’s freshest from the farmers on their menus.
Live music fills the air and creates a vibrant energy. Thanks to the support of the SDPL North Park Branch Library, Artelexia, Mona Lizzy and other community partners, the North Park Thursday Market often features hands-on art and culinary activities for adults and children alike.
Grab easy parking thanks to the adjacent 340-space North Park Parking Garage. The North Park Thursday Market accepts SNAP EBT cards for scrip that can be used for groceries throughout the market.

Per SD County health code requirements, pets should be kept 20 feet from food booths–difficult at our food-focused market–but of course we never restrict service animals.
