Soon to open next door to (but not affiliated with) Farm House Cafe on Adams in University Heights, is Cueva Bar. Expect to find some basic tapas (so far from the menu on their website) and wines from any country that speaks Spanish (Spain, Mexico, and maybe a few that speak Portuguese), along with micro brews on tap. Will be nice to have another choice in the hopping and growing area that includes some good places on Park Boulevard.
You need not be a foodie to stroll Canon from Rosecrans east two blocks to Shafter on a Sunday morning to support the new Farmers Market. You’ll find local organic produce and other goodies including flowers and even craft items. Cheese lovers can rejoice at the selection that Mary Palmer of Taste Artisan Cheese brings to the market. Mary and her hubby George decided to do the markets rather than the brick and mortar place they had on University next to Wine Steals.
Buzz recently cruised the market and found it a terrific start for the Point Loma residents who don’t want the hassle of the Wednesday Ocean Beach market, or don’t want to drive to Hillcrest for their Sunday shopping. Besides good produce, cheese, and flowers, you can have a less traditional Sunday brunch as you munch on the multi-ethnic prepared foods available. Buzz would like to see an earlier opening as their current hours are 9:30 am to 2:30 pm.
It’s up to the community to support local farmers…and our local economy. What would you like to see at the Farmers Markets …wherever you live in San Diego?
