Hillcrest Farmers Market

3960 Normal Street
619-299-3330

The Hillcrest Farmers Market currently consists of 140 vendors offering a wide variety of locally grown in-season fruit, produce, gifts, arts and crafts, and flowers. On any given Sunday we have about 125 of our vendors. Many of the local farmers participating in the market grow their produce organically or with no pesticides. The market also hosts a large variety of prepared food and hot food items with an emphasis on international cuisine. Additionally, each week, there are a large number of arts and crafts vendors participating, as well as weekly entertainment performed by Shawn Rohlf and the 7th Day Buskers, a local folk band (additional bands play weekly, check out the heart of the market to see who's playing).

The market originally opened with only 35 vendors on the second Sunday in April 1997. The market has been incredibly successful since it first opened and retains the reputation as "The Best" Farmers Market in San Diego County. It was late in 1995 when then acting President of the Hillcrest Business Association, David Cohen, determined that Hillcrest needed a farmers market and that the Hillcrest Business Association was going to be the market sponsor and find a suitable location in Hillcrest to host it. After tirelessly searching for a site and with the help and influence of Congresswoman Susan Davis, State Assembly Person at the time, a deal was finally made with the Department of Motor Vehicles to use their parking lot.

Best Farmers Market I've EVER been to! It's HUGE and beautiful and vibrant and so fun! One half is filled with local farmers, vendors, etc. There are so many natural products and clothing, dips and snacks and cheeses, coffee and tea, flower stands, veggies and fruits, bakeries, etc. etc. Usually there is live music playing. The other half has every type of authentic cuisine you could ever think of and it is all absolutely delicious!! We go here every Sunday to get groceries for the week and treat ourselves to a super yummy lunch! There aren't a lot of spots to sit and eat/relax, but other than that this market is perfect!!

This place is great, I love strolling through the market, getting some food at the West African booth, getting some fresh flowers, or grabbing some fresh veggies. Most places take cards but it's helpful to bring cash. Parking is a pain so I recommend walking over or biking around.

I shared a sunny afternoon with an old friend and my senses were overloaded with all the tastes, sights, sounds and smells of fresh foods, chic limited edition clothing options, blooming flowers and plants and other goodies galore! I had forgotten how magical the Farmers Market can be! (downside is service animals only but it is the law)

The food is awesome i sometimes go just for that. Ambient is pretty chill, but it is kind of small. Pet friendly. Friendly people but not much places to sit and eat.

Great food and produce. Always extremely hot outside so sunblock and finding some of the limited shade are key.
