The Mission Bay High School Seaside Farmer’s Market kicks off its summer celebration during Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 25. The Seaside Market opened March 16 in the parking lot of the school on Grand Avenue.

The summer kickoff celebration program includes water-safety information from the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation, including an ocean-safety presentation at noon. Other activities include free face painting for children of all ages and live music from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. by Stevie Q and the Girls, and the Music Generation’s Boy Band from Pacific Beach Middle School.

The summer kickoff celebration is the brainchild of special-events volunteer Jillian Ziska, a new member of the Seaside Farmer’s Market management team.

“We are especially excited to be working with Jillian,” said market manager Cori Meara. “From Day One she has brought new ideas and energy to our management team.”

The market was established by Mission Bay High alums Pam Palmer Deitz and Meara, both of whom have children who attend MBHS. The purpose of the market is to raise funds for the school at a time when the San Diego Unified School District is financially strapped and cutting back program funding.

“Even if you don’t have children in Pacific Beach schools, supporting the Seaside Farmer’s Market and MBHS is part of the solution for PB,” said Deitz said.

“Small, everyday acts build up over time to create change. Shopping and dining at the Seaside Farmer’s Market on Saturdays is one of those small, everyday acts that can make amazing change for Mission Bay High School,” she said.

The Seaside Farmer’s Market takes place every Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and features good from local farmers, artisans and crafters, as well as food trucks and live music.
