Oct 02 @ 02:00 pm - Oct 02 @ 07:00 pm

Grossmont Center is proud to announce that it is hosting a Certified Farmers Market, starting July 24, 2019. From 2 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday, Center visitors can enjoy shopping for fresh produce or pick up their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes—all in one convenient location!

Farmers Market Shopping Is Fun for Everyone

There’s plenty to choose from at this weekly market. Shoppers know the Grossmont Center  Certified Farmers Market is the best place around for sustainable, locally sourced fruits and vegetables produced by the hard-working growers of San Diego County—vendors come from towns ranging from Oceanside to Jamul to sell at the market. It’s a wonderful place to get produce in season during its peak—the vegetables seem crisper, the fruit more fragrant and juicy. Regular market-goers know the farmers who sell their wares are happy to talk to customers about growing methods and tips for keeping produce fresh at home—they might even have a recipe suggestion or two! Regardless of the weather, the farmers market will offer local fruits and vegetables that are in-season every Wednesday. Market-goers will also stroll to the sounds of local musicians and artists who frequent the market. Shoppers can also subscribe to a Community Supported Agriculture program and pick up their weekly CSA box.

 

Bring your reusable bag—you’re sure to load up on all kinds of purchases at the Grossmont Center Certified Farmers Market!

We will also be having performances by local artists on these dates:

La Mesa Park and Recreation Foundation and Grossmont Center Make a Great Team

By partnering with the La Mesa Park and Recreation Foundation, Grossmont Center will raise money for the foundation and bring another exciting weekly market to La Mesa. The Grossmont Center Farmers Market will generate revenue for the La Mesa Parks and Recreation Foundation. The 8% vendor fee will provide a lower cost of involvement than other markets in the area.

 

GC is more than a mall—it’s a place where people come together. Our lively events lineup creates a festive community spirit at Grossmont Center, which makes the farmers market a perfect fit.

Farmers Market Parking

The Center is easy to get to and offers plenty of free parking, as well as lots of space for all the vendor booths at the market. Customers can park in the Target parking lot and farmers can park by their booth to directly offload produce from the back of their trucks to their booth.

 

Grossmont Center is also a huge proponent of shopping local—and shopping local is what farmers markets are all about. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesdays!
