Vista Farmers Market 30th Birthday Celebration

Saturday, September 24
Location: 325 S Melrose Drive (Vista Courthouse)
“The Vista Farmers Market created the model that inspired others,” says Mark Wall, market manager, “and now this market is celebrating three decades of helping local farmers and building community.” The every-Saturday market will feature two live bands and street performers (think stilt-walkers, fire-eaters, jugglers) during its 30th anniversary party on Saturday September 24th. As one of the first 25 farmers markets… in the state (there are now 729) the Vista Farmers Market is larger than ever . . . with over 90 farmers, food-makers, craftspeople, and marketers. Forty-five real farmers are represented at the market each week, along with food-makers selling a large variety of juices, dips, sauces, breads, dog treats, cakes, cookies, brownies, salsa, cheese, meats, and various treats. “This market changes every week, as farm produce comes into, and goes out of, season,” according to Wall, “and food entrepreneurs try out new items with our 2,000 weekly customers.”

The Vista Farmers Market operates every Saturday, year-round,
from 8 am to 12 noon at the County Courthouse at
325 South Melrose Drive, in the City of Vista.
