Coming Summer 2018: Daybreak Farmer's Market


Need another reason to look forward to summer? LiveDAYBREAK has some great news.

The Community Council is partnering with Daybreak resident Stephanie Devine to start a Daybreak Farmer’s Market on SoDa Row. Vendors will open for business starting June 2, 2018, through September 29, 2018. You will be able to find produce, crafts, and other artisan items every Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 p.m.

 

 

In 2017, Stephanie moved to Daybreak from Huntington Beach, California. As she settled into her new community, it struck her that Daybreak would benefit greatly from a farmer’s market. As a strong supporter of local businesses and growers, Stephanie was determined to make it happen.

 

"I've always tried to eat as close to where my food was grown as possible. In fact, my family either grew or harvested most of our own food when I was a child. Because of that, I value the incredibly dedicated and often difficult work that small producers put into their products,” said Stephanie. “I've been shopping farmer’s markets since the 1980's, and thought that a farmers market would be the next logical step for a community like Daybreak.”

 

As of right now, Stephanie has been able to secure a wide variety of vendors selling items including produce, grass-fed beef, artisan baked goods, wild caught seafood, handmade jewelry, crafts, and hand-sewn clothing.

 

Through the partnership with LiveDAYBREAK, the Daybreak Farmer’s Market will be able to call SoDa Row home. LiveDAYBREAK was excited when Stephanie reached out, as the Community Council is always looking for ways to partner with passionate residents on community projects.

 

Stephanie has found LiveDAYBREAK to be a great resource to help her achieve the goal of bringing a farmer’s market to Daybreak, “LiveDAYBREAK has such a good feel for the community and what people want here. They have been an incredible source of info and support. We could not be happier.”
