According to the California Federation of Certified Farmers’ Markets:

  • California Certified Farmers’ Markets are the “Real Thing”, places where the farmers sell their crops directly to the public.
  • Before a farmer can sell at a “Certified” Farmers Market, the government checks to makes sure that the farmer grows the produce that the farmer is selling.
  • Elimination of packing, shipping, and wholesale costs means both the farmer and consumer can save money.
  • Safe, nutritious, vine and tree-ripened fruit and vegetables that are California-Grown and Certified by the State of California.

Are prices higher at a farmers’ market than a grocery store?

Prices are often competitive, even lower than many supermarkets. Customers benefit from the reduced costs that are associated with farmers choosing to sell at a farmers market. Reduced packaging, less transportation, and no middle man, means better prices for the consumer- also, better quality!

Is it an organic market?

While many of our farmers meet several USDA organic standards, we are not an official organic market. Farmers that are classified as organic must have signage indicating so.
