Celebrate La Jolla Open Aire Market's 14th Anniversary & Harvest Festival

Stop by the La Jolla Open Aire Market on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to celebrate the Harvest Festival with certified farmers, local artisans, prepared foods, live music and activities.

The La Jolla Open Aire Market turns 14 this month. The local farmers market at La Jolla Elementary School, which benefits the public school, will have a big Harvest Festival this Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Come dressed in a costume and enjoy live music, a balloon artist, a calk walk, carnival games, arts and crafts, prizes, and, of course, all the regular vendors. 

The La Jolla Open Aire Market is a great way to stock up on fruits, vegetables, eggs, cheeses, breads, desserts, nuts and a variety of prepared foods. In addition, numerous local artistics and food court vendors set up each Sunday.

The farmers market started as a fundraiser to pay for a library and librarian 14 years ago. It reached and surpasseded that original goal and now funds various initiatives at LJES, including school improvements and programs such as a library, art, music, technology, nurse, extra teachers for lower class sizes in 4th and 5th grade, and instructional supplies.

In addition to helping the children of LJES, the market has also become a vibrant weekly event and gathering place for the entire La Jolla community, explained parent Wendy LaGrange.
