One of the top things to do in Studio City is visiting the Studio City Farmers Market. Studio City Farmers Market is located on Ventura Place between Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Radford Avenue.

The Studio City Residents Association and the Studio City Chamber of Commerce Foundation established the Studio City Farmers Market to provide locals with access to fresh produce and artisan foods and crafts from their own neighborhood. Vendors at the Market provide everything from grass-fed beef and fresh seafood to handcrafted breads, olive oils, honey, ready meals, fruits, and vegetables. The market offers breakfast options as well as hot meals to take away for lunch and dinner.
The market has become more than just a shopping destination; it’s also become a gathering location where families and friends may spend an afternoon together. There are tables available on the lawn across from the market and can be used for relaxation and enjoying some food and beverages.
Buying and selling locally is more essential than ever. According to statistics, if everyone in the United States ate just one meal each week made with locally produced meats, vegetables, and fruits, oil usage would be reduced by over 1.1 million barrels each week.
