Santa Maria has the Pacific to thank for its perfect produce. The cool coastal breeze and ocean fog help to temper the sun’s bright rays, making for an exceptional environment to grow all-things green and tasty. When you’re here, you can find fresh produce in a number of places—farmer’s markets, produce stands, and charming markets are all chock-full of the season’s best fruits and vegetables. The best part, though? It’s all picked fresh just for you, by farmers who are like family to us.
