The vision and mission of Caliwala™ is to provide fresh, local and natural foods and convenience goods to the Santa Margarita, South Atascadero and surrounding areas – prioritizing and balancing health, sustainability, quality, and cost. While Caliwala™ is committed to offering a reliable selection of foods from our main natural grocery supplier, Caliwala™ aims to be a leader in sourcing and curating affordable, locally grown and prepared foods.
With ongoing help and support from her community, Caliwala™ was created and launched in 2019 by local resident, engineer and musician Erin Inglish. Passionate about food and community, Inglish has poured her heart and intellect into all that Caliwala™ has to offer. She looks forward to greeting you at the market.
Erin Inglish has been passionate about susatianability and positive solutions from a young age, and has chanelled that in many ways. The opening of Caliwala™ follows many years of research on our local food systems inspired by a personal interest in food solutions. Erin has a degree in mechanical engineering and has worked as a sustainability consultant and energy efficiency and green building specialist. Erin currently plays music full-time on the Central Coast with her Americana-inspired jazz trio (Erin Inglish Trio: www.erininglish.com). You will most likely find her working at the market when she is not playing music, come on by and say hello!
