New Market location and hours beginning Saturday, September 28th.
Starting Saturday, September 28, the Old Poway Park Farmers Market is now located in its new location with extended hours and additional vendors!
The Farmers Market is now located on Midland Road from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Saturday creating a pedestrian-friendly shopping and entertainment experience in the Old Poway Park area. Motorists will be detoured from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. All driveway parking and Midland Road business access will remain open during market hours. While there is plenty of parking in the Old Poway Park area, we encourage parking in the former Farmers Market lot and the parking lot east of Old Poway Park.
The Farmers Market currently offers 45 vendors providing fresh produce, flowers, music, and freshly-prepared food. All produce is certified, inspected by the agricultural commission, and is brought to you fresh from the grower. The market participates in the WIC program and will continue to grow in size with the new location.
When visiting the market, take time to explore all that the Old Poway Park area has to offer! Shop the small boutiques in Old Poway Village, pay tribute to the Armed Forces at Poway Veterans Park, ride the 1907 Baldwin Steam Engine, or learn about Poway’s history touring the Nelson House and Heritage Museum. The Hamburger Factory provides the perfect sit-down, family experience with a full breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu.
The Poway Farmers Market is a great place to be in the City in the Country! The City of Poway sponsors the market, and Outback Farms, with years of market management experience, operates the market.
Centrally located in San Diego County in the City of Poway's historic Old Poway area, the market is certified by the county's agricultural commissioner. That means every product you see at the Old Poway Farmers Market is grown by the farmer vendor and sold fresh right to the consumer. Growers of organic produce must certify that they use no pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers.
Nearly all the approximately 25 farmers participating in the Old Poway Farmers Market grow their produce right here in San Diego County. Each is certified as the actual producer, which guarantees you always get delicious California grown produce. In cooperation with the San Diego County Agricultural Commissioner, inspectors visit the Old Poway Farmers Market and inspect both the grower's products and certifications. This not only helps maintain quality, but also guarantees the continued participation of only California farmers.
When you shop for your farm-fresh goods at the Old Poway Farmers Market, take some time to talk to the growers. They'll enjoy telling you about their operation, and you'll soon notice they take pride in discussing their produce. The farmers are also eager to provide recipes and tips on food preparation.
Many items at the Old Poway Farmers Market are priced 15 to 20 percent lower than produce offered in supermarkets. That's because certified farmers markets exempt growers from standard labeling and packaging procedures. In addition, because products are grown and sold directly to consumers from within California cutting out the middleman, transportation costs are lower and other costs are eliminated. Farmers can then often pass on their savings to customers with lower prices.
