Farmers’ Markets

Fresh Farm-to-Fork Food Readily Available

Certified Farmers’ Markets are open on Wednesdays from 9 am to 1:30 pm at Capitol Mall to offer chefs and shoppers locally-sourced fruits, vegetables, baked goods, flowers, herbs, and cheeses. The downtown markets offers chefs and shoppers a chance to come face-to-face with their food source, offering the freshest California-grown seasonal favorites from asparagus in the spring to apples in the fall.

Get ready to fill your stylish bags with farm-fresh produce and deliciously vibrant flower bouquets! Meet the farmers who will be at this year’s Downtown Certified Farmers’ Market.

Chefs Priority Pickup: 9 – 10 AM and includes parking with easy access to the farmers.

Vendor Applications for 2021 are now closed.

ENJOY RESPONSIBLY

Effective June 15, the Downtown Certified Farmers’ Market removed restrictions at the market while still prioritizing the health and safety of shoppers and vendors. This includes that, while not required, masks are still strongly encouraged. If you are fully vaccinated, you may choose to shop without a mask in accordance with CDC and state guidelines. Guests are encouraged to adhere to recommendations from public health officials, available here. Notable protocols and safety measures for shoppers include:

  • If you are sick, or a member of your household is sick, please stay home.
  • We encourage customers to maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other people, especially when in line.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available for shoppers and vendors.
  • Frequent cleaning of market equipment.

Please do your part to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself is by doing the same things you do to avoid getting any other virus — including the flu. These measures include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people outside your home.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • Be alert for symptoms, and take your temperature if symptoms develop.
