How you help It takes a community to build a sustainable local food system! Our programs rely on passionate volunteers and interns.
About us We sponsor certified farmers’ markets and run programs in and around them that: expand food access, fight food waste, and educate in Los Angeles and Orange County. California Certified Farmers’ Markets are the real deal. Every farmer in a certified market has been vetted by the Agricultural Department to grow what they sell. Only California-grown produce is allowed in farm section of a certified farmers’ market. Customers can know they are buying directly from farmers, and supporting local California agriculture.
