Old Monterey is the heart of Historic Downtown. We offer a well-marked Path of History, over 460 shops, restaurants, hotels, and businesses offering personal and professional services. Old Monterey has been serving the needs of residents and visitors alike. Downtown is also home of the Old Monterey Market Place, held on Alvarado Street, the city's historic main street, every Tuesday afternoon, rain or shine. As a Certified Farmer's Market, it offers a deliciously tempting Baker's Alley, fresh organic produce, and dozens of unique arts and craft vendors.
The Old Monterey Business Association (OMBA) is a nonprofit organization committed to enhancing and promoting the economic vitality and community spirit of Old Monterey. A certified member of the National Main Street program since 1992, the OMBA produces a local dining guide, monthly Commercial Space Available listings and a Path of History brochure that guides both locals and visitors through a celebration of Monterey's exciting past.
