Free pony rides, a petting zoo, an inflatable jump and other family-oriented entertainment will be at the Certified Farmer’s Market and Open Air Bazaar when it moves to a new time and day of the week.
The Market will now be every Friday from 3 to 6 p.m., and will continue to take place at EastLake Elementary School, 1955 Hillside Drive, Chula Vista.
The Farmer’s Market is unique in EastLake, with fresh fruits and vegetables from more than 20 local farmers, arts and crafts from local artisans, entertainment, specialty items and food vendors all in one location.
Proceeds from the Market go to the EastLake Educational Foundation. The EEF is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving kids the best educational opportunities possible. The Foundation was created to help meet Olympic View Elementary School’s ongoing needs such as curriculum, instructional materials and technology needs not covered by the Mello Roos taxes.
