This project is a work in progress. Contact us to add and/or adjust information on this list.

Our farmers are of all ages. Some are second generation farmers. Several are Cal Poly graduates. While some like Hayashi, Righetti, Martin, Cirone, and Fernamburg have been coming to our markets for more than 25 years, most have been coming for over ten years.

Get to know your farmers by exploring this list featuring many local farms and farmers you may encounter on your next visit to one of our markets. We hope to have a complete list finished in late 2013 featuring every farmer who elects to participate.
