The Certified Farmers’ Market (CFM) concept is an effort to re-establish the traditional link between farmers and consumers in California. It is where the agrarian community relates to the urban community. More specifically, a CFM is a location approved by the county agricultural commissioner where certified farmers offer for sale only those agricultural products they grow themselves. California Certified Farmers’ Markets are operated in accordance with regulations established in 1977 by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. There are over 500 Certified Farmers’ Markets in the state now and the number is growing every year. This website features a “Find a Market” feature, and lists commodities by region. Also lists laws and legislation, as well as other resources.
