CUCINA CARA MIA.......Random thoughts from "my dear kitchen" about food, travel, Italy, San Diego and life!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011


There is an expression - timing is everything, and I think that applies to my experience at the Bernardo Winery Farmers Market. I have been selling at this new location for 3 weeks and it has been very positive so far. If you are not familiar with the Bernardo Winery - it is the oldest winery in Southern California, established in 1889. It is not just a winery, but a lovely and charming destination, with shops, a restaurant, Cafe Merlot, a picnic area, a venue for weddings, and a tasting room. With 5 wine tastings for only $8.00, it would be a great place to spend a weekend afternoon. The farmers market takes place on Fridays from 9am-noon, Stop by and sample some of our locally crafted Italian fare --including rosemary focaccia, polenta vegetable lasagna, nutella brownies, orange ricotta poundcake and Limoncello cheesecake.

A big thanks to my friend Katie who has been helping me out at the new market. AND she also is passing the word around to her friends who live in the area.

It looks like a beautiful place. I will have to visit this winery next time I am in the area, and hopefully sample some of your wonderful creations. Love Marie
