The Certified Farmers' Market is considered the largest farmers market in all of California with 110 vendors.

Open every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 8 am until noon, the Certified Farmers' Market is dedicated to providing the strongest community-minded market possible. You'll find farmers selling everything from produce and meats to nuts, flowers, eggs, plants, and even pastries.

Most of the items here have been harvested within 8 hours of the market opening and the tastes, smells, and textures that you'll experience while walking through the market can definitely attest to that. It's no wonder that this market is a popular stop for many of Sacramento's top chefs.

When you first arrive, it is recommended that you walk through the market in its entirety before buying anything to ensure you've seen all of the merchandise and differences in pricing.

Bargaining for small amounts is not recommended. However, bargaining for greater amounts is usually well received.

Be sure to also remember to bring lots of small bills and change because there is no central checkout station or ATMs. Dogs are unfortunately not allowed.

The Certified Farmers' Market changes location depending on the weekday. For more information, be sure to check out their official site here or Facebook page located here.
