Carmel has been recognized and acclaimed as one of the nation’s most desirable places to visit, work, and live. The unparalleled natural beauty, the preservation of the downtown character, clean ocean air, beautiful beach and charming neighborhoods contribute to the quality of life enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
A unique characteristic of Carmel-by-the-Sea is that there are no street addresses. Properties are identified, for example, as being on the “west side of San Antonio Street, 3 houses south of 12th Avenue”.
The Carmel Farmers’ Market is held on Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Sixth Avenue between Junipero and Mission Streets and run by Golden State Farmers Market.
