Uptown farmers markets expanding to the community and giving back

SAN DIEGO -- San Diego has some of the most exquisite weather in the country, so it’s not surprising that area farmers have a harvest season that spans longer than most. The city’s numerous weekly farmers markets provide these farmers opportunities to sell their wares and integrate with the community. Farmers markets in Hillcrest and North Park have added two new programs to extend their community involvement in their weekly markets.

The Hillcrest farmers market, open on Sundays from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Lincoln Street at Normal Street, offers approximately 125 weekly vendors who sell fruit, vegetables, arts, crafts, pre-prepared foods, beverages and more.

Hillcrest Business Association (HBA) Marketing and Communications Director Lisa Weir said she believes this market stands out because it has that “true community feel.”

“When you go to the Hillcrest farmers market you feel like you’re part of something,” she said.
