NileGuide Expert tip:
Parking is a huge challenge most days in OB - even more so on Wednesdays - so make sure to carpool or be prepared to walk!
As one of the favorite local spots in Ocean Beach, the Farmer's Market on Wednesday evenings is a place to enjoy both the beach location of OB and local performers, food and company. Celebrating the local, Wednesday evenings Ocean Beach's main drag (Newport Avenue) is closed off between Cable and Bacon streets where locals meander through festive foods favorites like flavored almonds, fresh panini's, mini donuts, sliced fruit and grilled corn on the cob. Ponies sometimes wander through the block, giving children rides, while musical acts entertain patrons at the edge of the streets with varying music - from punk-pop to jazz. The Ocean Beach Farmer's Market is often the most extensive of the traveling event with clothing and jewelry vendors.
