Hi Everyone! This week I want to write not about the vendors that have been with us since the beginning, not about the vendors that greet us with their familiar faces week after week, but instead those that pop in once in a while to introduce us to their unique products, hoping to become a […]Continue Reading...

Another seafood vendor for you today! This time it’s Poppa’s Fresh Fish, a vendor that really helps make the Hillcrest Market as incredible as it is. Why?

The following is a part of my final paper for one of my Rady MBA classes last quarter. The title of the paper is “Funding Small, Local Food Businesses.” I meant to post this earlier, as it is unmistakably linked to this farmers market blog I write.
