We hope you will join us this year at the Modesto Certified Farmers Market as we complete our transformation to become the Central Valley’s premiere public market and an irreplaceable asset to our surrounding agricultural community.
For years we have been reaching out and listening to local farmers and our customers to guide our work; planning and implementing changes at our downtown market to once again have farmers as a main component of our weekly offerings.
The Farmers Market goals are to support our region’s farms by: connecting consumers directly to local food producers, strengthening urban-rural community bonds, and educating the public on the benefits of eating locally produced food. With these goals in place, our primary mission is to transform the market into a place where area farmers are successful selling to Modesto’s urban consumer.
Secondarily, the Market also strives to provide space for the success of local artisan food producers and produce, plant and food retailers.
Additional Market Vendors
We are currently looking for restaurateurs, artisan food producers and culinary entrepreneurs. Some examples of the types of establishments we hope will join us are:
* Ethnic produce
* Specialty Produce (ex. Avocado, Artichokes and other out of area items)
* Dairy Products
* Organic Meats, Eggs, Produce
* Home Garden Suppliers
The Market is seeking arts & crafts producers and retailers to expand the amount of hand-made and unique items offered at our weekly market.
