Where else can you gather with 3,000 of your closest friends every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon and enjoy food, sunshine, arts, handmade goods and music?
The Vista Farmers Market, of course! The market recently celebrated its 40th anniversary and is now San Diego County’s oldest and largest with about 100 farmers and makers gathering each week at the Vista Courthouse parking lot, 325 S. Melrose Drive.
Mark Wall, the market’s coordinator, credits supporters who show up each week rain or shine. The market never closed during the pandemic— providing a lifeline for farmers who delivered much-needed locally grown produce to consumers in a safe open-air environment.
Watch the video tour and meet a few of Vista’s own farmers and makers that make the market so special.
