Today we are visiting to The Del Mar Farmers Market .Del Mar is a quaint seaside village ,located just 20 miles north of San Diego on the Southern California coastline. Here we will find many examples of San Diego’s street food accompanied live music and beautiful coastal views.
The Del Mar Farmers Market is a Certified and Non-Profit Farmers Market supporting California Farmers by providing opportunities to sell directly to the public.
You can find pesticide-free seasonal fruits and vegetables, potted herbs, orchids, international cuisine, eggs, seafood, hummus, bread and baked goods, granola, almond butter, kettle corn, honey, jam, fruit juice, kombucha, and arts & crafts at the market.
Here certified farmers can sell their fruits and vegetables directly to the consumer.
There are also food vendors in the market, offering prepared foods, packaged foods, fresh bread, eggs, and seafood. You can get to know the food culture of many countries through the street food vendors here.
The Market operates year-round Saturdays 1pm-4pm at.
The history of the market is also quite interesting. This market, the second oldest Farmers market in the region, was founded in 1986 by seven Del Mar residents whose vision was to bring the concept of healthy living to Del Mar and to make the connection between the local farms and the local community.
The most important feature of the market is its non-profit status.The market founders felt strongly that their market should be a non-profit and that the profits should be distributed to local charities and for educational scholarships that would benefit the farmers’ children.
Every week each farmer pays a small percentage of their markets’ sales to cover operating expenses, and the balance is used for charitable purposes.
In the last 32 years, the Del Mar Farmers Market has given over $200,000 back to the community. Money earned from the Del Mar Farmers Market has found its way into the Del Mar Library, the Powerhouse, San Dieguito River Valley, regional non-governmental charities and educational scholarships.
