Brentwood Farmers Market Returns Saturday

0

The Brentwood Farmers Market is set to return this Saturday and the community is invited to join in with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:00 am.

The 2017 season begins March 4 and will run every Saturday through November 18  located at First Street between Oak and Chestnut.

The market offers a taste of the Best of Brentwood with fresh seasonal produce from cherries in the spring, peaches in early summer, and tomatoes and corn in late summer. All of it just-picked and brought to the market by the farmers themselves for you and family.

 About the Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association

The Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA) is not-for-profit organization that operates and promotes farmers’ markets in the San Francisco Bay Area. PCFMA is driven by its mission to serve California’s small farmers by creating and sustaining economic opportunities through these farmers’ markets.

Recognizing the potential of farmers’ markets to not only be vibrant economic outlets but also vibrant community centers, PCFMA also works to build and sustain a sense of community at each of its markets and to use the markets to educate the public about issues of nutrition and local agriculture.

PCFMA’s community education efforts include a partnership with its sister organization Fresh Approach on the innovative Cookin’ the Market program which brings live cooking demonstrations to farmers’ markets and other community events, and other activities focused on assisting low-income parents and seniors to utilize their public benefits at farmers’ markets, increasing their access to healthy foods.
