Certified Farmers' Markets

Certified Farmers' Markets (CFMs) were created by "direct marketing" legislation to support California farmers. By facilitating direct marketing, producers can sell what they grow directly to the public. Unlike other states, in order to sell agricultural products at a Certified Farmers' Market, those commodities must be grown by the producer selling at the market. Direct marketing is intended to support farms of all sizes by allowing them an additional means of selling their produce directly from farm to table.
