With warm days and cool nights, fall in San Diego offers some of the best weather of the year for getting out end enjoying some of the local attractions. One of Sunglass and Optical Warehouse’s favorites is Liberty Public Market.

Open 11am – 8pm, seven days a week, Liberty Public Market is located in San Diego’s historic Liberty Station (formerly the Naval Training Center, San Diego, which operated between 1923 and 1997). The public market houses nearly three dozen local artisans who offer prepared foods, beer, wines, specialty cocktails, produce, fish, desserts and pastries, pastas, arts and crafts, and much more for sale to its many daily visitors.
