Del Mar Farmers Market celebrates 25 years

Del Mar Farmers Market is one of San Diego’s original markets, second in the county behind Vista. The market was established in the fall of 1986 by seven local women: Marti Kaye, Ann Silber, Joyce Malone, Lorraine Rouse, Alice Goodkind, Nancy Weare and Sharon Fierabend. Their vision was not to turn a profit, but to bring the concept of healthy living to Del Mar, and to make the connection between the local farms and the local community.

These women also had the vision to create a non-profit market with 100 percent of net profits going back into the community. This year the market has supported the Del Mar Library, Community Connections, the construction of the Community Services/Lifeguard Headquarters, the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy and scholarships for students of farmers who are part of the DMFM community.
