Dear Little Italy Residents, Businesses and Visitors, the safety and well-being of our historic neighborhood and the citizens of San Diego is our top priority.
As the situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19) develops, we have been closely monitoring all information locally, nationally and globally to ensure we best serve our residents, businesses and visitors. It is important to be knowledgeable, take proper precautions and stay calm. With that in mind, we would like to share the following information
Due to COVID-19 and specifically new guidance from the California Department of Health, we have postponed all non-essential events and entertainment in Little Italy until the end of March. We are closely monitoring developments by public officials and will resume events once it is deemed safe.
The Little Italy Farmers Markets will be closed temporarily as staff works with the County and City to reopen with a modified structure, so our community members have access to farm fresh produce. For updated information, please follow the Little Italy Mercato on Facebook or call 619-233-3901.
