On every first Sunday of the month, Del Mar street welcomes local produce vendors, artists, craftsmen and visitors that flood the stretches of  sidewalks to buy fresh flowers, souvenirs or other unique handcrafted finds.

Sunday's are the ultimate days to relax and unwind, so it was a definite must to visit the Farmers Market. At every farmer's market you will always find a new vendor and someone who has never…

J.C. Beans Coffee House, established in 1994, is one of the few remaining successful independent coffee retailers. Their coffee is so good that their business wasn’t threatened when a drive through Starbucks opened up TWO doors down. 

Unlike Starbucks, J.C. Beans has a cozy, traditional atmosphere where one can enjoy a book from their eclectic library in front of a warm fire. It is also furnished with beautiful antiques and works supplied by local artists.
