This year is the Stockton Certified Farmers' Market Association's 35th year of operation. The Association was founded on July 7th, 1979 and began with a dozen vendors under the Downtown Freeway. It began operation on Saturday mornings from daylight to 1p.m. The Saturday market, still in its original location, has now grown to over 80 vendors at full capacity supporting thousands of customers in only a four hour period. Its Downtown market is one of the largest Southeast Asian Farmers' Markets in Northern California and has received national recognition.
The Association has had a few other markets at different locations since then. Our current locations include the Downtown Market(35 years old), and our Park West Place Farmers Market(6 years). This Association was one of the first of the over 500 markets in California to be established.
While there are only a handful of the original vendors of the Association still participating, the Association has stayed true to its roots. The majority, of our vendors sell farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. Depending on which of the locations you visit though, you can also find: organic produce, honey, farm-fresh eggs, seafood, soy milk, rice noodles, nursery plants, fresh-cut flowers, olive & canola oils, baked goods, Filipino food, Mediterranean food, Chinese food, baked breads, mushrooms, and balut.
The Association has monthly fruit basket raffle giveaways at its Trinity Parkway location and has multiple events going on each month. All of the Association's locations are a part of and currently accept WIC, Senior Nutrition Coupons, and EBT cards.
