Ecology Center Farmers’ Markets

The Ecology Center Farmers’ Markets are festive, family-friendly, open-air marketplaces where California farmers bring fresh, locally-grown produce and farm-processed foods to sell directly to consumers. Our markets feature fruits, vegetables, nuts, baked goods, jams and preserves, juices, olive oils, tofu, meat, cheese, prepared foods, nursery plants, and flowers. Often, musicians entertain the shoppers, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. We are committed to supporting small-scale farmers who practice sustainable agriculture, and we always accept WIC and EBT. Follow us on Twitter.

SHOP WITH CALFRESH EBT AT THE FARMERS' MARKETS


We always accept CalFresh EBT at our farmers’ markets. Customers who are currently enrolled in CalFresh can also receive a dollar-for-dollar match up to $10 at any of the Ecology Center farmers’ markets with Market Match. Market Match is California’s healthy food incentive program, which matches customers’ federal nutrition assistance benefits, like CalFresh (formerly known as food stamps), at farmers’ markets. When people use their benefits at farmers’ markets, Market Match provides matching funds so that they can buy even more fruits and vegetables. For example, a shopper who wishes to spend $10 of CalFresh benefits at the farmers’ markets gets an extra $10 to spend on fresh produce. For more information, visit the farmers’ market information booth and ask about CalFresh and Market Match.

The Ecology Center also works to make sure EBT recipients can purchase fresh produce at all farmers’ markets in California, and works with partners statewide to offer Market Match.
