Ukiah was voted #5 in the nation and #2 in California in the American Farmland Trust's 2013 national I Love My Farmers’ Market Competition! Come find out why!
Ukiah's local farmers created the first Certified Farmer's Market in Mendocino County in 1977. Although this Saturday morning market is the largest in the county, it has a small and personal feeling in comparison to many markets in larger cities. It's more than a shopping experience, for the community members who come regularly to taste the genuine difference with fresh produce directly from friendly local farmers who grow their foods.
The inland climate of the Ukiah area valleys provides farmers with ideal conditions for spring produce from May through June. Hot weather fruits and vegetables grow prolifically from July through October. This market also draws vendors from the nearby coastal climate to provide cool weather crops throughout the season, as well as seafood.
This market features many colorful and educational events for the whole family several times a month. Many residents come to enjoy the friendly atmosphere where talented musicians entertain weekly and customers can relax with beverages and fresh-baked pastries every Saturday morning throughout the year.
Market is open rain or shine! We gladly accept WIC coupons and EBT/Food Stamps.
