Taste of the BLVD Market @ El Cajon Boulevard - 10/16/2015 Every third Friday of the month, The Boulevard Center and Utah Street transform into the liveliest and tastiest of outdoor food markets. This culinary creative marketplace features the best local cuisine and attracts a diverse crowd of food junkies, casual eaters, and local residents looking for a place to mingle and enjoy delicious food. On Friday October 16th from 6-10pm The BLVD Market, San Diego’s first monthly pop-up food market celebrates its 1 Year Anniversary with the “Taste of the BLVD Market”, a special culinary event that for the first time offers market goers a chance to enjoy delicious samples from each one of the market’s unique vendors. From Maine lobster and Neapolitan pizza, to savory Ethiopian dishes and Latin American empanadas, the “Taste of the BLVD Market” showcases the variety of eclectic cuisine offered monthly at the market. The BLVD Market launched in October 2014. By showcasing San Diego’s most creative, up-and-coming chefs and culinary purveyors, the BLVD Market was an immediate hit. With growing popularity and the desire to showcase more local food vendors, the BLVD Market expanded onto Utah Street in July.  Doubling the amount of creative food offerings, including a specialty cocktail lounge, the Calypso Club, the BLVD Market has become San Diego’s monthly destination for foodies and culture seekers. With support from the local community, neighboring businesses on El Cajon Boulevard and consistent sponsorship from H.G. Fenton, the BLVD Market has become San Diego’s premier food market. Tickets to the “Taste of the BLVD Market” are $15 for one person or two for $20.   The Taste of the BLVD Market is limited to 50 people, so in order to reserve your tickets early, call Boulevard’s office at 619.283.3608.  Tickets can also be purchased on the day of the market, at The Boulevard’s booth.[more]
