Farmers' Markets of the 805 Ventura County Edition

Written by
 
What is a Farmer Market?
 
Merriam- Webster defines it as "a market at which local farmers sell their agricultural products directly to consumers".
 
Did you also know that the first farmers' market opened in 1634 in Boston, Massachusetts, but one can trace farmers' markets back 5000 years to Egypt where farmers along the Nile would gather and sell their fresh produce. In ancient times farmers' markets served as the historical-version of grocery stores.
 
Farmers markets have increased in number and popularity over the years and continue to evolve into a favorite place to gather and socialize in many communities. With a maturing farmers market system, USDA is focusing its support on sustainability and encouraging market development in underserved areas – keeping new and old farmers markets thriving.
 
As of April 2018, there are 13 Farmers' Markets in Ventura County, here are some of them
