Santa Barbara Gourmet Shops

Gourmet Shops & Markets

Anything that combines shopping with food has got to be good, right? Taste your way through town by exploring the area's fabulous gourmet food shops and specialty markets - whether you're outfitting your picnic basket or your pantry, you'll find everything you need (and want), including inspiration galore! All the ingredients for the "good life" that local residents enjoy are here: Start with the bountiful farmers markets (you'll find at least one in the area six days a week) and the Saturday morning Fishermen's Market at the Santa Barbara harbor reeling in fresh-off-the-boat local seafood from spot prawns and spiny lobsters to rock crabs, seabass and halibut (insider's tip: get there early!). If you miss the Fishermen's Market, not to worry - stop by one of Santa Barbara's well-stocked fish markets.

These local specialties will ignite your imagination as you move on to gourmet food shops for locally produced olives, olive oils and nuts, and a globe-trotting array of charcuterie, cheeses, prepared foods, herbs and spices. And pair it all with world-class Santa Barbara County wines from wine shops that also offer tips and tasting events. From dry-roasted pistachios to dark-chocolate truffles, it's all ready to devour now or to take home (if it doesn't disappear on the way!).
