California Farmers’ Markets Association’s system of farmers' markets serves over 22,000 Bay Area households each week.
Food from the farmers' market tastes sweet, crisp, and fresh! Often fruits and vegetables were picked hours before the farmers' market, and have traveled less than fruits and vegetables found at grocery stores. The fruits at farmers' markets are sweeter because more sugars as fruit ripens on the tree instead of in the truck.
Another benefit of going to a farmers' market is getting to know your food's origin. Ask the farmer where the farm is, what varieties they grow, what they do for pest control, and when is their harvest season. Our farmers bring you the best of their fields weekly, rain or shine!
