Welcome to the Hillcrest Farmers Market Blog!
Did you know that the Hillcrest Farmers Market is regarded as the "Best" Farmers Market in San Diego? If you don't know why, you clearly haven't been to it! This blog will give you the latest news and other additional information on the Hillcrest Farmers Market to keep you up to date and informed.
A little background, the Hillcrest Farmers Market orignially opened on the second Sunday in April 1997. The market originally opened with 35 vendors and now has grown and reached its maximum capacity at the present site of 110 vendors.
Sticking to its roots, the Hillcrest Farmers Market still has the widest selection of friendly farmers selling their freshest produce, fruit, and flowers.
Many of the local and California Farmers participating in the market grow their produce organically or with no pesticides.
You can also find a variety of other specialty farm grown foods ranging from all types of cheese, specially made hummus and dips, salsa, olive oil products, poultry, jams, and pastries. Unique handmade crafts and jewlery are also available, as well as orchids and cactus plants, dog food, dresses, hats, and wine bottle holders! Oh, and don't forget to stop by the hot foods section! Tastes from all over the world can be found there from gourmet Parisian crepes to homemade tamales, peace pies, paninis, coffee, and the best gyros around. There is also live musical performances in the center of the market. So skip your boring grocery store and come to the Hillcrest Farmers Market instead!
The Hillcrest Farmers Market is open every Sunday 9:00 am to 2:00 pm rain or shine and is located at the DMV parking lot at the intersection of Lincoln and Normal streets. Any questions contact market organizer David Larson at 619-237-1632 or email: DRLinBaja@hotmail.com.
