What you'll do

We'll introduce ourselves to each other and find out what has brought us to this unique stretch of California coastline. I'll share a few stories of my favorite local farmers and food vendors who come to the Coastside Farmers' Market each Saturday.

Then we'll venture into the market, taking in all the colors, shapes, and personalities that make up this vibrant community gathering.

Along the way, I'll introduce you to some of my favorite vendors and we'll check out what's fresh and in season now. We might even get to sample some product, if we're lucky!

With our sketchbooks and a few items we've collected at the market, we'll walk a short two blocks to the local library, where we will sit down to capture our stories in line, color, shape, and words. We'll be using fun approaches that enable anyone to draw!

Afterwards, you may choose to explore downtown Half Moon Bay (two blocks away on Main Street), where there are plenty of tasty options for lunch, shopping, or people watching. The beach is also accessible, approximately 1 mile away via Kelly Avenue
Other things to note
This is a quintessential local coastside experience! You'll feel the community vibe and witness the relationships that make this our happy place. Come with your curiosity!

Meet your host, Lisa

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I have traveled the world visiting and sketching local markets, and my own local market is still one of my favorites. I'm an artist, yoga and meditation practitioner, and holistic life coach, and I'm eager to show you some of the best natural bounty that our coast has to offer. I've lived in Half Moon Bay for 6.5 years, and in the Bay Area for over 14 years.

Where you'll be

I'll introduce guests to an assortment of the local organic farmers and food vendors whose products are featured in the market. I've personally known and purchased from these farmers for the past six years, and I've cherished watching their harvests grow. Getting to know the people who grow our food, and hearing their stories, is an essential part of "food literacy", as we reconnect with our food sources and the vitality of communities
