Farm & Hangout by Coastal Roots Farm @ Coastal Roots Farm
Jun 15 @ 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Farm & Hangout is an annual summer series at Coastal Roots Farm on the third Thursday of Summer months. From 4:30-7pm the Farm is an open, relaxing, and lively place to visit with family, friends, and to make new connections. Each month there’s local music, local food vendors and trucks, farm and gardening activities for all ages, farm tour, and opportunities to learn more about the farm and how one can be involved.

Farm & Hangout intersects with our regular pay-what-you-can Farm Stand hours so you can purchase produce for the weekend, as well as meet our farmers!

We’re kicking off the summer with the lively tunes of Coral Bells, a six-piece folky amalgamation of Southern California beach dwellers.

Good Food Showcase @ The Leichtag Foundation Ranch
Sep 3 @ 2:57 pm – 3:57 pm

The 5th Annual Good Food Showcase is an event to connect buyers with local good food businesses from the San Diego County region.   Over the last four years this annual Showcase has helped connect hundreds of institutional purchasers with dozens of local farms and other producers.  Surveyed buyers from the 2016 Showcase reported purchasing over $120,000 in local and sustainable foods as a result of their attendance.

The Good Food Showcase will be held on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Coastal Roots Farm in Encinitas. Every year the showcase brings growers, distributors, and other good food businesses together with the institutional market to make connections and help expand our local economy and encourage more consumption of fresh, healthy fruits, vegetables, and other good food products. Food and beverages will also be provided.

At the Good Food Showcase we strive to increase the education and awareness of how community well-being is tied to a healthy food system.  By building a stronger market for our local farms and food producers, we are building a healthier community.
