A glimpse into locally grown crops can be found at any one our certified farmer’s markets located throughout the county.  

From eggs, vegetables and fresh-cut flowers, farmers markets offer a wide variety of locally grown produce and one-of-a-kind handcrafted items while supporting local farmers.

Certified farmer’s markets are registered with the County through the Department of Agriculture/Weights & Measures and growers are regulated by the California Department of Food & Agriculture

Certified growers (referred to as producers) must follow strict guidelines when cultivating and selling their agricultural items, such as whole fresh fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs, cultivated mushrooms, shell eggs, honey, cut flowers, unprocessed grains and nursery stock.  

Farmers market vendors vary from location-to-location. For a full list of certified markets, visit awm.sbcounty.gov/certified-farmers-markets-locations 

The programs the Department of Agriculture/Weights & Measures administers are essential to protecting the county’s agricultural resources.
