PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH
Dear Former Webb Park Certified Farmers Market Vendors,
This has all happened very quickly, with considerable thanks to our new Market Sponsors, The Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. The Historic Farmstead is owned and operated by the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority.
OFFICIALLY: The "Webb Park Certified Farmers Market" is no longer operating. Those market operations, including its current governing rules and vendor base, have adopted the functional name the North San Diego Farmers Market. Beginning Sunday 4/10, the North San Diego Farmers Market will be operating as part of the existing Certified Farmers Market located at the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. Their current vendor base is very small and we have been made to feel EXTREMELY welcome and wanted. The combining of our 2 markets is amazingly wonderful for both sides.
Until a formal merger of the 2 markets is finalized, we are operating as:
North San Diego Farmers Market, part of the
We are working toward merging the North San Diego Farmers Market (formerly the Webb Park CERTIFIED Farmers Market) and the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead CERTIFIED Farmers Market.
The intention is for the resulting new Certified Farmers Market to be called: The North San Diego CERTIFIED Farmers Market at the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. The merged market will be managed by Richard Knudson and Claire Winnick, along with Christine Bass as Market Coordinator. We hope to have all the terms of the merger finalized by early May, but operationally we are a work in progress starting this Sunday.
Additional features of the new market environment include a rotating availability of: pony rides, trail rides, wagon rides, and tours of the Historic Sikes Adobe Farmstead. And don't forget our kids jumpers!
PLEASE become familiar with the Sikes Adobe Historical Farmstead. We are there to generate interest in the landmark, and to encourage our patrons to visit and support the Homestead by taking tours and participating in the adjacent activities, which directly support the Homestead. Literature about the Farmstead will be provided to you on Sunday; we are Ambassadors for the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead.
The Sikes Adobe Farmhouse is a State Point of Historic Interest and a City of San Diego historic site that is being restored by the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority to its period of significance – the period from 1869 to 1899 – which is the time period when it was occupied by the Sikes family. From it we can learn what life was like for the pioneer settlers in San Diego shortly after statehood. The Farmhouse was initially restored in January 2004. In October 2007 it was burned to the ground except for the adobe walls. Rebuilding began in August 2009. The Grand Re-Opening Ceremony was held June 26, 2010.
FIRST AND FOREMOST: FLEXIBILITY AND PATIENCE.
As always, we WELCOME feedback, accompanied by suggestions for modifications if that feedback suggests a needed change. We have NOT had the amount of time to become familiar with the venue as we were with Webb Park, so we will all be learning together.
