POINT LOMA— Artisan mecca Liberty Public Market has added eight new names to its roster of nearly 30 merchants landing at the 22,000 sq. ft. space this fall. Additions include Argentinian eats by Parana Empanadas, bowls and burritos from Local Greens, plus grass-fed burgers by San Diego food truck purveyor Stuffed. Local and sustainable seafood (prepared to takeout or dine-in) will come courtesy of FishBone Kitchen, sauces and seasonings from Desert Smoke, and homemade raviolis by Pasta Design. Celebrated French patisserie and boulangerie Le Parfait Paris, plus whole leaf teas and one-off blends by Point Loma Tea, rounds out sweeter fare. [EaterWire]

DEL MAR The Rock’n Chef Competition has announced its star-studded lineup as part of the eagerly anticipated inaugural KAABOO Music Festival. On Saturday, September 19 Amy Dibiase, Brian Malarkey, Chad White, James Montejano, Jason McLeod and Javier Plascencia will battle it out in the "winner-takes-all" contest.  Divided into pairs, each team will whip up an appetizer and entrée during the first 60-minute round; chefs with the two highest scores go on to create an entrée and a dessert in the final round – the eventual winner crowned KAABOO’s Rock’n Chef. Tickets are available online. [EaterWire]
