Welcome to the Farmers Market at El Cerrito Plaza
The Farmers Market at El Cerrito Plaza began operation on July 24, 1994. The Market is a Certified Market, which means it has been Certified by the State of California Department of Agriculture. The market was established for the benefit of both producers (certified growers) and consumers.
Guidelines are set by the Dept. to ensure that producers sell only what they grow. Inspections may be made by the Dept. without advance notice and fines may be given.
The market Manager, Jean Thompson, started her tenure in July, 1999. She said, "during these past years, the market has stayed consistent in providing quality fresh produce and fruit, sold by the friendly farmers that grow it. Both vendor and customer are very often on first name terms and have become like family."
There is a Manager's table at the market, so please don't hesitate to ask questions, especially as to status of vendors, as some are only operating seasonally.
If you wish to ask about having a table to sell your own product, please contact Jean Thompson.
