Del Mar Farmers Market selects new manager

Del Mar resident Ana Nieto was recently chosen by the Board of Directors as the new manager of the Del Mar Farmers Market, one of the longest running Farmers Markets in San Diego.

Nieto is originally from Madrid, Spain, where she received her degree in nursing. She has founded multiple businesses in the health and wellness industry, including several Farmers Markets in Long Island, New York. One of the markets Nietro started was the Winter Market in Sag Harbor which she found to be very much like Del Mar, but not year round. She said she loves the feeling of community she feels in Del Mar. Nieto moved to the United States 20 years ago and lived in New York City where she opened up a personal training studio. She still works with a few of her clients via Skype.

Additionally, Nieto is a nutrition specialist, dance instructor and theatrical producer. She is committed to developing sustainable communities wherever she goes, incorporating the arts, health and wellness and real estate design and development into those communities. You can visit her website at

The Del Mar Farmers Market is a certified and nonprofit Farmers Market, operating since 1986, year-round every Saturday from 1-4 p.m. in the Del Mar City Hall lower parking lot, just off Camino Del Mar between 10th and 11th streets. The Del Mar Farmers Market is “proud to support the real farmers who sell their organic and pesticide free fruits, vegetables, baked good, meats and seafood directly to the consumer, helping to sustain local farming and enrich the community.” Visit or follow us on Facebook.

It is Nieto’s goal to enhance and widen the Del Mar Farmers Market’s weekly vendor selection, as well as incorporate social media into the promotion of the Del Mar Farmers Market
