Amping up for CityFest 2011
This weekend at the market we pumped ourselves up with a fun filled afternoon before heading over to the 27th annual Hillcrest CityFest! We were joined by our balloon guy, Tyler Sterling of Pretend Inc, who is totally amazing.
Tyler hung out with us at the Info Booth and market patrons came over to get awesome balloon creations and tattoos throughout the course of the day.
We were joined at the info booth by new and old faces- our #1 fan came by in the dress that she tie-dyed with us last weekend and had Tyler create a puppy for her to walk around the market.
We also saw Mario and Princess Peach at the market, as well as an assortment of turtles, flower rings, lady bugs, and aliens!
After the market on Sunday we packed up and headed on over to Hillcrest's biggest annual event- CityFest! We hung out with The Spirt of Hillcrest, and Tempo and watched the brand new Hillcrest sign light up the intersection of 5th and University while enjoying awesome bands and tasty food and drinks throughout the course of the festival.
Next week at the farmers market we will be hanging out at the heart of the market at 1pm for our monthly Visiting Chef Series with Chef Johnny Durant from San Diego's very own Top of the Market. He'll be preparing togoroshi seared ahi tuna with heirloom tomatoes & mixed greens finished with micro arugula and a koo ju jang vinaigrette!
