Little Italy Farmers Market opening today

I was so overjoyed to tell you about the new City Heights farmers market that I failed to mention that today also marks the opening day for another certified farmers market, the Little Italy Mercato.

Little Italy Mercato
Saturday, 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Date Street-India to Columbia -North Side

And while I'm at it, I don't think I've mentioned another new farmers market that has been set up recently in the hip and trendy neighborhood of East Village. It's so idealy situated that you can pick up your produce at the market and then swing by the brand new Cowboy Star Butcher Shop at 640 10th Avenue for some fresh, organic, grass-fed meat (alas, not local). Parking is not usually too much of a challenge on Saturday mornings but don't forget some change for the meters.

A list of all the San Diego County farmers markets will follow shortly for inclusion in my San Diego Eat Local Food Guide!

could you include a day of the week for those two markets?

Sure! The days have been added. As farmers markets have a tendency to change times/days throughout their life, please use the Farmers Market listing under San Diego Eat Local Food Guide on the right-hand side of the page for the most up-to-date information!
