Some other interesting parts from the story:
- It's on a par with Studio City, which the manager, Carole Gallegos, ran until 2011, but it's in a pleasanter location, in a park, with better parking.
- The market's layout was recently reconfigured to accommodate expansion by an adjacent school, but sales have increased 30% since manager Gallegos took over two and a half years ago, she says.
- A good catch for Encino is Burkdoll Farms, which has grown in Visalia since 1858 and mostly sells at Santa Barbara area markets.
