What is a certified farmers market?

According to the California Federation of Certified Farmers’ Markets:

California Certified Farmers’ Markets are places where farmers sell their crops directly to the public. Before a farmer can sell at a “certified” farmers market, the farm is inspected by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that the farmer is growing what they are selling, then the farmer is presented with a “Producer’s Certificate.” This certificate is required to be in view of the public and can be viewed at any time if asked.

Why should I shop at a farmers’ market?

  1. You would support local farmers and businesses, which helps the economy.
  2. You’ll experience the higher quality and taste of fresh produce compared to store-bought products.
  3. You’ll know that you’re buying safe produce that has been handled with care.
  4. You’ll always get the best seasonal produce.
  5. There are lots of opportunities to connect with your community and to get to know your farmers.
  6. You’ll always find something new!
  7. You’ll discover where your food comes from and learn new things.
  8. It’s enjoyable for the whole family

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.
