Farmers Markets

Farmers Markets


The Program provides services for farmers and consumers through certified farmers' markets located in Los Angeles County and throughout the state of California. Certified farmers' markets are approved by the county's agricultural commissioner and operate in accordance with regulations established by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Certification guarantees that the consumer is purchasing directly from the producer. There are no geographic restrictions.

These open-air markets provide farm-fresh produce directly to the consumer, often at a substantial savings. Some markets are open year-round others are seasonal usually operating from April to October. Products typically available include fresh fruits and vegetables; eggs; nuts; honey; cut flowers; plants; and fresh fish.

Farmers interested in opening a Certified Farmers Market or becoming a Certified Producer contact the County Agricultural Commissioner's Office in which they produce their commodity.
