Black Friday has come and gone, but the Pacific Beach Tuesday Farmers' Market happens all year round and supports local artists and farmers. If you missed the initial holiday madness, you can still find dozens of gifts at the market for everyone on your list.
Think outside of electronics and flashy dashy gifts from the mall and shop for something more personal- you can find sustainable and hand crafted goods from many of our vendors. Remind the ones you love how sweet they are with miniature honey bears or beeswax candles from Mikolich Honey. Have a wine lover in the family? Give them a colorful, hand crafted bottle stopper or wine cradle from Conte Bella Vino Gifts.
With family in and out of town and all the end of year busyness, there is potential for high stress. So offer yourself and your friends healing lotions and bath salts from Botanicology or soothing massage oils from Keys Creek Lavender Farm.
You can share the gift of locally made, fair trade goods at your next neighborhood holiday party by bringing a gift package of olive oils and aged vinegars from California Olive Oil or perhaps offering your favorite blend of loose leaf teas or coffee from Agora Bean & Leaf.
Enjoy shopping at the market with the lights twinkling down the streets and the spirit of giving before you.
