Farmers' Markets in Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity Counties

Farmers' Markets in the United States

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates more than a million people visit a farmers’ market each week they are open. More than 20,000 farmers sell at farmers’ markets. On average, the produce in your local supermarket has been transported about 1,500 miles to its destination. Compare this distance to the average of 50 miles of travel for produce appearing at a farmers’ market.



Farmers' Markets on the North Coast


Starting in 1979, with a few farmers selling from their trucks in an empty lot in Arcata, the region now boasts farmers’ markets from Garberville to Crescent City, and from Shelter Cove to Weaverville.

The largest and oldest farmers’ markets organization in the region is the North Coast Growers’ Association (NCGA), managing five markets in Northern Humboldt County. These coastal markets are generally open April - November. The Southern Humboldt farmers’ markets manages three markets, generally open from May through October.

Certified Farmers' Markets

Certified Farmers' Markets promote direct marketing, from field to consumer, without a middleman. One of the first four certified markets in the state, the North Coast Growers' Association is now the longest continuously-running Certified Market in California. Their guidelines allow farmers to sell only produce that the farmers themselves have grown, and the seller at the stand must be the grower or an employee of the farm.

Certified Markets are helping to bring back the small family farm by giving local farmers an opportunity to sell directly to the consumer at fair market value. They also ensure that the consumer buys a genuinely local product, not something picked prematurely and shipped thousands of miles. The consumer gets the freshest, naturally-ripened fruit and vegetables, as well as local honey, oysters, beef, mushrooms, cheese, flowers, herbs, trees, and bedding plants, directly from the producers. Regional wine that’s been certified organic is now also available at some of the North Coast farmers’ markets.
