La Jolla Open Aire Market


Located on the campus of La Jolla Elementary School, the La Jolla Open Aire Market is a bustling and vibrant weekly gathering place for the entire La Jolla community and beyond, with more than 120 vendors in attendance every Sunday from 9-1, rain or shine. From farm fresh produce, eggs and flowers, to unique treasures from local artisans, to an extensive international gourmet food court, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Avocado toast, crepes, tacos, stuffed hashbrowns, smoothies, fresh baked goods, bone broth, as well as many vegan and gluten free options are some weekly customer favorites.

Bring your family and friends for a fun day of eating and shopping while listening to live music. The market offers complimentary dog sitting at the market gates, courtesy of Dog Zenergy, and has a large grassy field for picnics, as well as two playgrounds for the children to enjoy.

The La Jolla Open Aire Market is different than other farmer’s markets in that all proceeds benefit La Jolla Elementary School (LJES), a public school. The proceeds from the market fund various initiatives enjoyed by all of the children at LJES, including school improvements and programs such as art, music, library, technology and additional teachers to lower class sizes. Founded by former LJES mom and La Jolla community supporter, Sherry Ahern, to help fund a library and a librarian, the market just celebrated it’s 20 year anniversary.
