San Mateo County Farmers Markets


Did you know that San Mateo County has several different farmers markets? Farmers markets are a great way to stock up on nutritious, seasonal produce from local farmers. Shopping local gives you an opportunity to get fresh produce, while also supporting your community by purchasing from local growers.

According to The Silver Lining’s 7 Reasons why you Should Visit a Farmers Market, local farmers markets offer more variety at cheaper prices. “When you visit a grocery store, the cost for organic and sustainably grown produce can put a real dent in your pocketbook. But did you know that at a farmers market, the cost for freshly picked, sustainably grown (and often organic) produce is just a fraction of the cost?

Without the added overhead of rent, executive salaries and shipping costs, farmers can often charge much lower prices for the produce you love.”
