San Diego County has more small farms (over 6,500) than any other county in the Country. With spring just around the corner, San Diego’s Farmers Markets are a great way to enjoy the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables. My favorites are the Little Italy Mercato on Saturdays and the Hillcrest Farmers Market on Sundays. But with over 45 farmers markets in the County, you’re sure to find one wherever you are.

This weekend, the San Diego Junior Theatre located in Balboa Park debuts the Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley. Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, every day, run-of-the-mill ten-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life.

Performances are Fridays at 7:00 pm and Saturdays at 2:00 pm.
