The MMA features a variety of artistic expressions to suit all tastes, such as photography, landscapes, prints and murals.

Local Fun for Everyone

There’s no better place to spend time outdoors than in and around East Garrison. One place that’s ideal for getting out each week is the local farmers’ market. Every Sunday you can bask in the sun while taking your pick of choice fruits, vegetables, an amazing selection of fresh seasonal flowers and much more – brought to you directly from local growers and vendors.

Located at 215 Reservation Road in the Marina Village Shopping Center, the Marina Certified Farmers’ Market is open year-round from 10am – 2pm.

You will find fresh quality fruits and veggies, most of which are certified organic from small-scale family farmers. And, when you shop at this farmers’ market, your purchases are used to support California growers and the local community!
