Farmers Markets Heat Up the Coast this Summer

Farm fresh produce, local bounty, and artisan treasures can only mean one thing … the return of summer. Each coastal farmers market brings its own charm and flavor and Pacifica Hotels’ convenient locations make it easier than ever for you to sample the fare.

“Americas Finest City” has its fair share of farmers markets, but our favorite is the Pacific Beach Farmers Market, located a short 10-minute walk from our Blue Sea Beach Hotel.
