Just a few blocks from the Pier, discover a European-style town square, upscale shops and a display of local artwork at the beautiful Metlox Plaza just a short distance from your Manhattan Beach hotels - The SeaView Inn!

Tuesdays are especially abuzz at the Plaza, when foodies, families and hungry visitors explore the Manhattan Beach Farmers Market. More than 45 food vendors offer a weekly array of farm fresh produce and eggs, meat and seafood and artisanal food products. You'll find everything from nut butters to micro greens, balsamic vinegars to kettle corn. Treat yourself to a gorgeous bouquet of freshly-picked flowers. You deserve it!

Feeling a bit hungry? You've come to the right place! Whether you're craving crepes, papusas or kabobs, the Market features an international selection of healthy grab-and-go salads, lunch bowls and seasonal soups. Market patrons rave about the vegan and vegetarian options at Dave's Gourmet Korean Food; try the popular tempeh and the BBQ tofu. Enjoy the fresh organic juices along with Owana's poke bowls, and take home a jar of Pineapple Chili  or Apricot Pineapple jam from Fat Dog Jams.  Splurge on dessert: luscious coconut cream pie and hummingbird cake from Bountiful Foods. Amazing!

The Market is just the ticket when you're looking for some kid-friendly, outdoor fun. The little ones can take a ride on the trackless train that circles the Plaza, get colorful with face painting, and enjoy a balloon artist, storytelling and live music.  When you're ready to cool off, head to the Metlox Plaza courtyard to climb, splash and play in the fountains.
