Move To Larger Venue Boosting Farmers Market

DOWNTOWN LA MESA -- The recently relocated public market continues to grow and attract larger crowds.
On Friday this week, more new merchants joined the gathering at the new site, along Spring Street, and local residents were noticing the difference.
"I'm impressed,'' said Jocelyn Marshall, who said she leaves her job at hospice each week and rewards herself with a visit to the public market. "There are more vendors and a greater choice.''
The newly expanded market also features an increasing number of durable good vendors, including clothing and household good sales tents that lend a bit of a street fair feeling to what had previously been solely a food venue.
The regulars are still here from the old, smaller site up Allison Avenue, including the Greek man who claims his pickled garlic and flavored olive oils will cure your cholesterol problems. (See video below).  Maybe or maybe not. It is clear, however, they will improve your life.

Some of the new vendors attracted to the larger venue included a local woman who imports coffee and roasts it in La Mesa under the Divine Madman Coffee label.
