It looks like the weather will be favorable
for our Sunday in the Park
Market this week. We want to
thank all the vendors for their flexibility
and support with last week's "on the
fly" restructuring to accommodate this
past Sunday's weather.
Unfortunately, the property owners have informed
us that setting up in the
parking lots again
IS NOT AN OPTION,
so we will be formulating a new
rain-contingency plan shortly. With
an optimistic forecast for this
Sunday, we are laying out
the market along the Park Walkway,
as the market has become known for.
- We expect that on Sunday morning
some areas of the Park may still
be wet from rain on Saturday, and
we will work around those areas
- Vendors may want to come prepared
with some tarps, mats and/or indoor/outdoor
carpet runners to facilitate setting
up in an assigned location that
may still be a little damp, or we
will allocate an alternate location
that may be dryer.
- Flexibility will be
the key this Sunday, as we will
not know the specific ground conditions
until Sunday morning.
- As always, keep in mind that
this is a Park setting, and surfaces
are generally uneven and somewhat
sloped; please bring levelers for
making height adjustments to canopy
and table legs as needed.
- Please also plan accordingly
if your products are sun-sensitive;
we may be limited to where vendors
will be able to set up based on
the ground conditions.
this past weekend did show us is that
our shoppers prefer to browse and purchase
when our vendors are grouped closer
together, covering a smaller area. Although
we have the "entire" Webb Park available
to us, we just do not have enough vendors
to effectively stretch end-to-end in
the Park and still create a positive
selling experience for vendors.
With this in mind, we are laying out
the market for this weekend from 2 main
positions, and working outward, enabling
us to accommodate the number of vendors
in attendance without leaving gaps between
sections. The 2 defined areas are the
FARMERS and the CENTRAL PATIO.
PROPOSED LAYOUT MAP (exact layout subject
to revision and/or change)
be located in their Certified Section,
as approved by the San Diego County
Department of Agriculture. We will be
arranging the Food Court and similar
vendors around the PATIO area. All other
vendors will be assigned space around
and radiating out from these 2 areas,
grouped together based on their specialty.
We will not
be setting up vendors between the amphitheater
and Rotary Clock (the "old" market area),
but we will have signs in that area
directing shoppers to the new hub.
Check in and set up begins at 8:30am.
PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE EARLIER
as we will still be assessing the ground
conditions and determining layout decisions.
If you arrive before 8:30am, please
be prepared to wait until 8:30am to
check in with the managers.
All vendors will check in with Richard or Claire at the
It is located behind
the parking lot of the CALIFORNIA
BANK & TRUST Building, at 16796 Bernardo
Once you know where you will be setting
up, you may move your car to the closest
parking lot area for unloading. As always,
once you have unloaded your car, please
move it away from the park perimeter
to leave those parking spaces closest
to the park for our shoppers.
