If there’s one thing that North County residents enjoy more than the beach, it’s the various cuisine, beverages, and sweet treats throughout San Diego. Here, we offer a taste of some local flavor.

Fare & Festivity

Berry Sweet

The annual Vista Strawberry Festival on May 27 will feature carnival rides, a beer garden, live entertainment, and more than 400 vendors – all to celebrate the beloved strawberry. Visit www.vistastrawberryfest.com for more information.


Baseball Bites

Padres fans have new options for satisfying their mid-game munchies this season, with two San Diego favorites adding ballpark locations. Buona Forchetta offers simply delicious Italian fare from Neapolitan pizza to gelato. Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill will open one stand serving fish tacos and sandwiches and a second stand with an expanded menu of fresh, local seafood.
