Join the Search for Rodney Rooster!
Farmers Market in the La Mesa Village - Get out into the community with your little ones! Unplug, play with your kids, enjoy easy nature crafts and of course, shop for local, organic produce at the Farmer's Market. Kids can search for the market mascot Rodney Rooster who will be hiding in a different vendor booth each week. Have your kids look for clues throughout the market and once Rodney's been spotted, come tell us and get a prize! Stick around for a craft or play in our version of "Fort Night Friday". Crafts are mainly geared towards ages 0-8 but we often have games like over-sized Jenga as well. The market is open from 3 - 7pm on Fridays near La Mesa Blvd and 3rd Street. Brought to you by the Unplugged Village in partnership with the San Diego Parent Connection and Brian's Farmers' Markets.
