Farmer’s Markets and Grocery Stores

There are many, many places to buy food and goods in Los Angeles.  We’ve pointed out a few places to get you started:   

 You can find Certified Farmers’ Markets throughout the Los Angeles area and the entire Southern California region. In addition to the freshest in-season produce, many also offer flowers, cheeses, baked goods, local artisans’ products, free-range chicken, and even seafood. Each market is unique and the types of produce and goods sold vary. In the markets listed here, many of the vendors offer organically grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The freshest produce goes fast, so arrive early to get the pick of the crop! 

Certified Farmers’ Markets are approved market sites by the County Agricultural Commissioner and the Health Department. They are part of a statewide program meant to increase the sustainability of small farmers by connecting the consumer and the farmer. All farmers selling at a Certified Farmers’ Market must have a Certified Producers Certificate from their local Agricultural Commissioner verifying that they grow the items that they sell. Farmers, nonprofit organizations or the local government usually operate these markets, which have developed into vital resources for communities that might otherwise lack a viable source of fresh fruits and vegetables. Certified Farmers’ Markets also play an important role in enlivening communities, creating street life and increasing economic opportunities.
