Vendors who make handcrafted items, sell fresh Ag. (certified) produce and on-site (and commercial kitchen) food items are welcome to apply. To Participate click here. Don’t hesitate to get on our waiting list if spaces are not available. We use this list to fill spaces as they open up.

This is berry season/cherry/apricot season and it comes and goes quickly. Blueberries are here for a short time. NOW is the time to make that jelly/jam your friends and family will enjoy as gifts. Lots of other fruits are here for longer periods. Peaches, plums, nectarines. Great 4th of July cobblers, parfaits, pie making and more right here fresh picked daily for you to taste and enjoy.
Don’t let these pass you up!

Still lots of fresh baked gourmet foods and coffees, cheese and honey. So much to choose from, if you have a sweet tooth too.

Top Ten Reasons Why Shopping at Farmers’ Market is Better

1. A Healthy Lifestyle

Farmers present large colorful displays of just-picked, vine-ripened, and best-tasting produce for thousands of health-minded shoppers every week.

2. Friendly Community

At farmers’ markets, you always see people talking to one another. They enjoy visiting with others–farmers, friends, and new acquaintances–and having a good time. Markets bring community elements together including fishermen, farmers, bakers, and families.

3. Freshness

With few exceptions, produce is brought to market the same day or within a day of picking. That’s fresh! Fresh products are crisp, have good texture, and taste better.

4. Flavor

Fruits like peaches, and produce like strawberries and tomatoes are picked when ripe, not before. Ripened on the tree or vine adds significantly to flavor.

5. Variety

Farmers bring many different varieties of just about every product. Several examples of the variety found the farmers’ market are: Spitzenberg and Braeburn are among the 70 plus apple varieties, Tuscan and Russian are a couple of the different kinds of kale, and lemon and Thai are two of two of the basil types. Variety provides a great healthy way to enrich ones life.

6. Flowers

You simply can not compare the volume, variety, quality, and freshness of flowers at the farmers’ markets with what grocery stores offer. With the exception of greenhouse roses, the types of flowers at the market vary with the season. For example, in February-March there are fantastic tulips, and during the summer there are tuberose, sunflowers, zinnias, and many more.

7. Meet the Farmers

This is really an advantage. Since the person you buy the product from is the farmer, or his/her employee, you can ask anything about the product, for example, where it was grown, what variety it is, if the product was sprayed, and cooking suggestions.

8. Support Family-operated Small Farms

Each stall space is used by a different farm. By shopping at farmers’ markets, you are supporting these family operated small farms.

9. Reduce the Carbon Footprint

Distance produce travels from farm to you via a grocery store is often greater than 1000 miles. Transport to and storage at the store often requires refrigeration, and these result in carbon dioxide emissions. At our farmers’ markets average distance traveled is less than 50 miles and there is no refrigeration or storage. Buying at a farmers’ market results in less carbon dioxide emissions.

10. California Grown

At the farmers’ market you know that all produce sold at our farmers’ markets is grown in California, not Mexico, not China, nor anywhere else in the world.
