Encinitas will be getting a new farmer’s market. The downtown Encinitas MainStreet Association has been working for over a year on the new Encinitas Station Certified Farmer’s Market Project. The market is intended to fill the need for a mid week farmers market in Encinitas. DEMA has a long history coordinating farmer’s market but unfortunately the proper location has not been available until now.
Carris Rhodes, Program Assistant at DEMA was the lead on the project and is thrilled to introduce a night time farmer’s market to downtown Encinitas. DEMA has been the main coordinator of this farmers market and aims to bolster foot-traffic in the downtown Encinitas district while giving residents more access to fresh, organic local produce.
This market will be taking a different angle than most in the county and will have no prepared foods vendors or arts and crafts vendors. The market will focus on spceailty food items such as cheeses meats, honey breads and local gourmet organic produce. The market has a strong partnership with Whole Foods Market and the North County Transit District. May through September, the farmers market will run from 5 to 8 p.m.—and October through April, it will run from 4 to 7 p.m.
This will be Encinitas’ second farmers market. This market was coordinated to be a compliment to the Sunday Farmer’s Market coordinated by DEMA’s sister organization, The Leucadia 101 MainStreet. The Leucadia Market is held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Sunday at Paul Ecke Elementary on Union Street.
