We're creating the world's best new public market right here in San Diego and filling it with farmers, chefs, art and food.
1,379 backers pledged $146,121 to help bring this project to life.

We did it! You did it! Let's keep doing it!

Posted by Catt White (Creator)
We reached our original goal this morning, 9 days after we started this crazy ride. Thank you Peter for pushing us over the mark with your generous donation! 

Now we see how far we can go between now and our campaign's end a week from today. The more we raise the faster we can add new elements to the market. 

 We're on the site right now with farmers,chefs and sandblasters so I'll be back later today with more updates. Just had to say Congratulations! Your San Diego Public Market is ready to grow! 

 We love you guys! Catt & Dale

      Kickstarter is designed to fund specific projects, Sheri, so we designed this campaign to finish the Market Food Hall that will initially house the weekly markets on Wednesdays and Sundays and then host the permanent shopkeeper spaces.

      This campaign gets us to Square 1: sprinklers, some permitting issues, signage and floor refinishing. We've already paid for initial permits, demolition, marketing, power washing, drywall and paint, bathroom upgrades etc.

      If the campaign funds higher we can move ahead faster on the commercial kitchen construction and equipment, studio spaces and parking lot upgrades. If it goes even farther we'll be able to put glass in the roll-up doors, cut the openings in the Market Hall walls to lead to the Market Plaza and Studios and create the Urban Farm Lab. It will all get done, but early funding means it will all get done faster.

      Thanks again for supporting the San Diego Public Market!

      Big fat congrats, Catt ad Dale! Can't wait to have our own Public Market. I've always enjoyed Pike's, Granville, Fanuel Hall, La Boqueria in Barcelona and all the other international markets!
