Irvine Farmers Market – Sundays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Started in October 2010, this increasingly lively market at the Great Park has a grassy location with plenty of easy parking and family activities, including the Great Park Balloon, a demonstration and teaching garden, and live music. Good produce—both fruit and vegetable—plus nursery-quality plants. Several gourmet food trucks are on site every Sunday, and unlike some markets, it welcomes dogs on leashes.
