How are San Diego farmer's markets?

I am visiting San Diego in September for the second time. I visited two years ago, splitting my time between LA and San Diego - But loved San Diego so much, I plan to spend all of my CA visit there this time. :)

All in all, I enjoyed everything in San Diego better than LA - Except for a totally phenomenal Sunday farmer's market in Hollywood. They had everything... tons of things that I, being from NY, have never been able to get a hold of. Such as... dozens of different varieties of grapes that are 10x sweeter and more delicious than the grocery store variety - Fresh dates just picked off the palm tree, freshly squeezed sugarcane juice, jujubes, and more... Not only did they have these fruits, but they had a huge variety of vendors selling them.

So I'm wondering, do any of the Farmer's markets in San Diego stand up to this? Or should I spend my Sunday driving to Hollywood to go back to this farmer's market? (I flew 3,000 miles... may as well spend one day driving 200 or so)
