  The Downtown Farmer's Market at Cesar Chavez Park

The people behind the Downtown Farmer's Market take pride in being a Certified Farmer's Market, which means it's a place where only "genuine" farmers sell only agricultural products they grow themselves. The idea is that by eliminating the middleman cost savings are passed onto the consumer while maximizing profits for the farmer.

The leaders behind these markets say, "California farmers are the most regulated farmers in the world. But high standards add to the cost of farming and put our farmers at a competitive disadvantage with produce shipped from other areas. By shopping at Certified Farmers Markets, consumers directly support our responsible California family farmers; help save our vanishing farmland; and maintain a safe food supply in the state where they raise their families."
