Nipomo Creek Farms, 511 E. Tefft Street, Nipomo

Blue Eyed Daisies Vintage Market is a monthly show where you can come enjoy yourself and not have to worry about much of anything.  Our goal is to bring back that down home feeling and easy going atmosphere.

Kids are welcome to play games, eat, shop, and have fun!  Since we are out on a farm plan on getting dusty and maybe a little dirty.  There is dirt, trees and hay bales.  This isn’t a “hands off” kind of show.  We want you to feel like you are at home and enjoy yourself.
