The Mission Hills Farmers Market Debut - in Photos

It looked like the little market on Falcon St. got a nice turnout for its debut last Friday. There were a number of familiar folks -- Smit Orchards, Suzie's Farm, Poppa's Fish, Jackie's Jams, and, as always Baba Hummus.

I picked up some beautiful peaches, apricots, and nectarines at Smit Orchards; small tomatoes and a lovely miniature white cucumber at Suzie's Farm; and some interesting products, including a large flat bread called Parath/Boulani, which was stuffed with spinach, ginger, and garlic, and a roasted garlic dip -- from Zaiqa Kitchens. I ran into friends who were shopping, and literally into happy little kids wandering around with lovely fruit juices dripping onto their hands and chins. It was a sunny afternoon with neighbors and dogs enjoying each other and the goods being sold.

The market appears again today (Friday) from 3 to 7 p.m. on Falcon St. between Washington and Ft. Stockton.

  1. Any good meat/poultry, egg, or dairy vendors? I sure wish there were more of these at SD area farmers markets, esp in north county near the coast.

  2. I didn't see any last week. Remember, they're just starting out. You can find all these at the Little Italy Mercato, the Hillcrest farmers market -- and cheese from Taste at the North Park and Adams Ave. markets.

    To be honest, I don't get up to the North County markets very often so I can't tell you if any of those have poultry, eggs, or dairy. Perhaps a reader out there can help with that???

    Thanks for the note!

  3. They have a beef vendor whose ranch is just 2 hrs away - good stuff! Also, I heard that next week they will have pasta and eggs! More info at:
