 Farmer’s Market

Now Don't Forget Your Vegetables!

Fall is a great time to visit the Manhattan Beach Farmers Market, which is held every Tuesday afternoon adjacent to the Metlox Center. But did you know that a portion of the Market’s proceeds return directly to our schools?  Thanks to the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business Association, MBEF reaps rewards every time you support the MB Farmers Market, but the greater community benefits too. 

Learn more about that here.
