Upper Shores Park at 225 9th St. is home to the certified and nonprofit Del Mar Farmers Market every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. It is self-proclaimed as the second oldest farmers market in the San Diego area — having been in operation since 1986 — and features 30 vendors every week.

Market Manager Fabian Huertas worked as a vendor in the Del Mar Farmers Market for years before being hired into his current position. He said the five-board-member-run market operates as a nonprofit, with any profits that they do gain being awarded to the community in the form of donations to the Del Mar Library and San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, as well as scholarships to community members.

“Our coastal location gives customers a beautiful view while they shop,” Huertas said. “The whole sense of being in Del Mar is a great atmosphere.”

Try the farm-fresh eggs from Eben-Haezer Poultry, Yoshi’s Jam, Gourmet Tamales, Valdivia Ranch and fresh produce from Ray’s Subtropical Farm.
