 Vendors feature locally grown organic vegetables and fruits, which include some of the sweetest Pluots I’ve ever tasted. They also sell freshly baked artisan bread, specialty nuts, Mediterranean and Hispanic food (with some really delicious looking tamale options) eggs and flowers. It is operated by the Orange County Farm Bureau.  Every farmer who sells at the certified market is inspected by the county agricultural commissioner to make sure they actually grow the commodity being sold.

The Irvine Regional Park farmers market provides enough choice without being too big. Parking is right next to the market and a lovely little playground sits right behind it. Entrance to Irvine Regional Park is FREE if you let them know your attending the Farmers Market.
