From the most loved coffee bar to the favorite Santa Monica farmer, the City of Santa Monica is putting the call out to discover and celebrate the Most Loved Businesses in Santa Monica. Which local business can you not live without? Who puts a smile on your face when you drop in?

The winners will be announced in an upcoming “Santa Monica’s Most Loved...” issue of the SM Daily Press, at an awards ceremony at City Hall in May, and will be celebrated throughout the year by the Buy Local Santa Monica initiative and community business partners. So tell us who you love and be entered to win some fabulous prizes including gift certificates from our local businesses, Buy Local SM gear and more!

To vote, visit (starting on Feb. 1).

Vote throughout the month of February and share your favorites on social media with the hashtags #MostLovedSM #SantaMonica. Make sure to tag @BuyLocalSM on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Results will be tabulated once the contest closes in March/April. Everyone who votes and enters their email will be entered to win a raffle prize. The winners will be notified in early May along with the announcement of the Most Loved SM 2020 Business Winners and Runners-Up.
