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.

Rewards and farmers and chefs, oh my!

Posted by Catt White (Creator)

Dear Kickstarters,

You've probably noticed that we've been zooming ahead on Phase 1: farmers' markets are up and running! And we've been lagging behind too: we promised certain rewards in September, and here it is October already. But, look! T-shirts are printed! We're almost ready to start distributing your goodies. 

Most of you have been incredibly patient as we've found ourselves just a little overwhelmed by the size, scope and speed of the San Diego Public Market project. Hundreds of you have shopped at the markets, found your name on the Kickstarter board, and taken a peek at what's next. Have you visited yet?

Some printed materials are in hand, others are on their way; beehive candles are being molded and chefs are lining up for coming events. We've got the Kickstarter survey format figured out (we think) after the first ones were a bit convoluted. (Sorry, Seedlings!) If you haven't received a survey e-mail yet, watch for it in the next few days. Watch our Facebook page for updates too. 

Meanwhile, join us for farm fresh food, have breakfast or lunch, say hello, and have your picture taken with the cow. We're open 9 am to 2 pm every Wednesday and Sunday at 1735 National Avenue. We're moving ahead each and every day because of you. Thank you Kickstarters, for planting the seed!

All yours, Catt & Dale

      So if we pledged $30, we can just give our name at the market to pick up our seeds, shirt, and candle?

      I was up in Seattle and visited Pikes Place. It really helped me catch a vision for what can happen here in San Diego. Excited!
