The farmers market which had been held at Webb Park has found a new home and will be operating Sunday under a new name, managers announced Tuesday.
The North San Diego Certified Farmers Market—formerly known as the Webb Park Certified Farmers Market—will be sharing the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead with a market held there on Sundays.
The North San Diego market, under managers Claire Winnick and Richard Knudson, will keep its same hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The farmstead is located at 12655 Sunset Dr., Escondido.
"We are very excited about these developments, and it can truly be said that every cloud does have a silver lining," Winnick and Knudson said in an email announcement. "By consolidating our farmers market efforts, we offer the community a bigger, better, stronger farmers market—one that continues to support the needs of the community, farmers and vendors."
Winnick and Knudson suddenly had to find a new home for the market last week after splits from their headline sponsor, the Rancho Bernardo Business Association, and the Bernardo Town Center Property Owners Association, which owns Webb Park. Revenue had been one issue among the parties.
The market was canceled Sunday after the managers ran out of time to secure a new location and all of the required paperwork.
