San Carlos Farmers Market
I drove past Pershing Middle School the other week and figured it was some event, but apparently there is now a San Carlos Farmers Market on Thursdays from 4-7. Anyone been?
From the sdfarmbureau.org website:
San Diego - San Carlos Certified Farmers' Market
Thursday: 4-7 pm
Pershing Middle School
8204 San Carlos Dr
San Diego, CA 92119
Manager: Community Crops
Went to the Farmer's Market on Thurs. Had about 4-5 stands selling produce - The Dutch Farmers from Rainbow and a couple of others I didn't recognize; a table from Hilliker Farms with eggs and a table from SD Tofu Dairy (?) that was selling locally made tofu.
There was also a bakery stand with breads, a cookie stand and a rum cake stand and 6-7 prepared food stands. The fish table had prepared oysters and other shellfish to eat on site, a taco stand also had fruit cups, an Indian food stand had mediocre samosas with good sauce, a stand had kettle corn and shaved ice, a stand had waffles and one had Philippine/Asian food (per their sign).
Overall it was nice to have a farmer's market close to home but it was definitely not a destination market.
My point was that the San Carlos farmer's market does not have the variety of vendors and produce that many of the other certified farmer's markets in SD have.
As such, I would not suggest that someone travel a significant distance to go there vs. Little Italy, Hillcrest, OB, etc. that are certified and that I would consider as destinations. Not sure if they qualify as 'event' markets or not.
