Cardiff Farmer’s Market Celebrates 1st Birthday

Cardiff, let’s raise a farm-fresh toast to your marvelous open-air market’s first trip around the sun! That’s right—exactly one year delivering seasonal bounty and small business boosts!

The milestone marks a year of significant growth, community impact, and, most importantly, supporting our local farmers, producers, artisans, and makers.

Cardiff Farmers Market Anniversary

The market serves as a gathering place for residents of Cardiff, Olivenhain, Encinitas, Solana Beach, and Rancho Santa Fe, offering not just fresh food but also entertainment in a family-friendly environment. It has become a weekly destination for those seeking quality, locally sourced produce and artisanal goods.

A Milestone Surpassing Expectations

“Reflecting on the past year, the success of the Cardiff Farmer’s Market has truly surpassed our expectations,” said Alison Wielechowski, Executive Director of Cardiff 101 Main Street.

“It’s been a remarkable journey to see our community come together to support local agriculture and artisans. This celebration is our way of saying thank you to our customers and vendors for coming back every week—rain or shine!

“We’re excited to continue growing and providing a space where everyone can access fresh, sustainable, and local produce.”

In its first year, Cardiff Farmer’s Market has distinguished itself as the only market in Encinitas to offer Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT), reinforcing its commitment to equitable access to fresh, local food.

The market has witnessed a remarkable 20% increase in certified farmers since its inception, showcasing a growing range of locally sourced produce.

Proudly featuring an array of ready-to-eat food products, artisan vendors, makers, and crafters, the market has become a platform for local entrepreneurs in North San Diego County, fostering a diverse and vibrant vendor community.

To commemorate this milestone, the market has planned a series of festive activities taking place at the market on Saturday, March 2:
