Family-Friendly Things to Do: July 6-8

Downtown LB Farmers Market

Friday, July 6 | 10:00am-2:00pm

4th and North Promenade

We love Long Beach for its daily farmers markets throughout town. Each farmers market in Long Beach has its own unique vibe, and if you haven’t visited the downtown version, this could be the week to explore what DTLB has to offer. Meet new vendors, listen to local musicians, and of course, try some fresh fruits and veggies. So go ahead and grab those eco-friendly totes and head downtown for a stroll through our amazing city. Remember to keep an eye out for some of the new murals that were created last week around the city! Learn More:
