The market operates from 12:00-3:00 PM every Wednesday at the Ravenswood Family Health Center (1798-A Bay Road, East Palo Alto). We feature local, organic and sustainable fruits and vegetables from Salinas and Hollister. We accept cash, EBT, FMNP WIC checks, FMNP senior checks and EPA Fresh Checks. If you’d like to receive a weekly email or text reminder about the Farmers Market, contact Nicole Wires at email@example.com.
We are excited to partner with The Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association (ALBA), a farmer incubator in Salinas, CA. The Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association (ALBA) provides educational and business opportunities for farm workers and aspiring farmers to grow and sell crops grown on two organic farms in Monterey County, California. Their mission is to advance economic viability, social equity and ecological land management among limited-resource and aspiring farmers.
Every third Wednesday of the month we host a free cooking demonstration, featuring fresh produce from the market. Check out this video to see a demo in action and stop by the third Wednesday of the month for delicious taste tests!
