North Park Thursday Market
North Park Main Street and San Diego Markets are proud to present a weekly event taking place in our vibrant neighborhood: the North Park Thursday Market! Join us every Thursday, year-round, from 3pm – 7:30pm at 3000 North Park Way (between 30th Street & Utah) for the neighborhood’s Certified Farmers’ Market!
Some 80 tents house farmers and vendors bringing their locally grown produce, artisan grocery items, prepared foods and hand-crafted goods every Thursday, rain-or-shine, to this family-friendly community event. Eat dinner, mingle with your neighbors and enjoy the outdoor setting.
Spot your favorites like J R Organics CSA Farm, Suzie’s Farm, Smit Farms, Valdivia Farm, The Bread Barn Artisan Bread Company, Bitchin’ Sauce and GreenFix Organic Smoothie along with great new farmers and vendors. Customers at the North Park Thursday Market will find fresh seafood from Poppa’s Fresh Fish Company, Fresco Pasta & Fine Cheeses, unique sauces from Baby Clydesdale, innovative prepared foods and rotating San Diego handcraft and fancy flea sections.
Local Chefs host cooking demonstrations with tasting experiences for customers. Take advantage of the opportunity to get to know these trendsetting Chefs personally, and enjoy delicious recipes from Chef Matt Gordon of Urban Solace Restaurant, Chef Rich Sweeney of Waypoint Public, Chef Joanne Sherif of Cardamom Cafe and Bakery, Chef Abe Botello of West Coast Tavern and many more. Within walking distance to the North Park Thursday Market, these restaurants offer ongoing specials like West Coast Tavern’s new “Thursday Vegetarian Plate” and Waypoint Public’s “Market Panzanella Salad” sourced from what’s freshest from the farmers.
Live music fills the air and creates a vibrant energy. Enjoy the stylings of local performers like Ace Tropic, Eric Rozet, Barrie Dempsey, Candread and more. Thanks to the support of the SDPL North Park Branch Library, Mona Lizzy’s Art Studio and local chefs, the Thursday Market features a healthy after-school snack area for kiddos like Friends of Jefferson Elementary students along with hands-on activities that share nutrition information in fun and creative ways.
Grab easy parking thanks to the adjacent 340-space North Park Parking Garage. The North Park Thursday Market accepts SNAP EBT cards for scrip that can be used for farm fresh fruits and vegetables and grocery items throughout the market. Double your SNAP EBT benefits for fresh fruits and vegetables every week (up to $10, limit one matching transaction per week per card) with Market Match. See the Welcome Booth for more information!
Per SD County health code requirements, pets should be kept 20 feet from food booths- it’s difficult to find a spot in the market that is far enough away from food at our food-focused market, but of course we never restrict service animals.
Invite your friends and neighbors, bring the kids and plan to fill up your grocery bags at the North Park Thursday Market every Thursday, rain-or-shine from 3pm – 7:30pm on North Park Way!
