Richmond's Original Farmers Market

area (See http://www.contracostatimes.com/search/ci_12553698?IADID=Search-www.contracostatimes.com-www.contracostatimes.com),  including a new one in Point Richmond (Farmer's Markets in Richmond Expand with Point Richmond Debut, May 28, 2009), I donít want to neglect Richmondís original farmers market at the Civic

 center.

The Richmond Certified Farmers Market has been in existence for 26 years.  It is year round, open every Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.  The market is located in the parking lot across from the Richmond Art Center on 24th Street & Barrett Avenue.

 

The market features locally grown live chickens, eggs, produce & fruit in season.  The market, run by the Richmond Certified Farmers Market Association, has one of the lowest barriers to entry for farmers, charging just $25 for each 12-foot stall space. Many of the vendors are immigrants who bring produce familiar to Richmondís ethnically diverse population.  There are free market-basket giveaways each week.

 

For more information about the market, contact: Steve Ghigliotto, market manager.
