About the Santa Monica Farmers Markets
The Santa Monica Farmers Markets are committed to promoting healthy eating and sustainable agriculture in California by providing fresh agricultural products direct from small farms to urban customers, thereby building community and preserving California farmland. It has since grown to be one of America’s leading farmers market programs with four weekly markets. An estimated 900,000 shoppers visit the markets each year.
FamilyFarmed.org’s mission is to expand the production, marketing and distribution of locally grown and responsibly produced food in order to enhance the social, economic and environmental health of our communities. FamilyFarmed.org is nationally recognized for “growing the market” for local and sustainable food and works with many of the country’s largest buyers of local and sustainably grown food. The Good Food Festival and Conference was created to link some of the best local farmers and family-owned producers of food and farm products with the public, trade buyers and leaders in the field to foster relationships that facilitate the growth of local food systems.
