Discover the Art of Food at Santa Barbara Public Market

Art & food go hand in hand. People have undeniable sensory connections to food – from its taste, to its form, to colors and textures.

To celebrate, the Santa Barbara Public Market is hosting “The Art of Food,” Aug. 10 – 16.

Visit the Public Market and explore art, food and culture with local experts in the Santa Barbara community, who will offer inspiration, instruction, and a creative way to experience the Santa Barbara Public Market.

Beginning on Monday, Aug. 10, the Public Market will debut a commissioned photography exhibit by renowned local photographer Kim Reierson, featuring the stars of the Public Market… the merchants!

Come tour the market and admire the photographs capturing the merchants, and the art of their craft.

See below for the additional lineup of Art of Food events the Public Market has in store for the community… follow the Public Market on social media (Facebook and @santabarbarapublicmarket) or visit www.sbpublicmarket.com for details and updates!
