RSFFM_Logo_1_200Dear Friends,

The Market is booming with new colors and flavors this week!  As you shop through all of our fresh produce and specialty items, be sure to pick up your cinnamon and raw honey next to the Manager’s booth.  Also, don’t miss the Helen Woodward Animal Center pet of the week, Coconut.  She was at the Market last week and is such a doll!  Read more about her and what’s new at the Market this week below.

DON’T FORGET, our weekly Rancho Santa Fe Certified Farmers Market is open from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM in the Del Rayo Village Shopping Center.  Look for your favorites and new vendors each week and check out the new tenants in the center while you are there.

Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market is the perfect place for shopping local to fill your fridge with fresh produce and flowers, delicious treats, prepared meals to go and more!

Remember, to bring an ice chest in your car or on wheels so you can relax and enjoy a nice lunch made fresh for you right at the market.  Take a few minutes to slow down and enjoy our live entertainment with your family and friends in the comfort of new Market umbrellas, bistro tables and cafe chairs!
