Mission

SUPPORTING SMALL FARMS

Our mission is to empower California farmers to be enormously successful in Bay Area communities. You'll see us pursuing our mission every time you shop at one of our farmers' markets where local farms gather to sell their delicious products.  

CHAMPIONING THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA LOCAL FOOD MOVEMENT SINCE 1988.

Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA) creates community-based food experiences throughout the San Francisco Bay Area that support California family farms and a healthy local food system.

PCFMA is a tax-exempt 501(c)5 nonprofit organization.

PURSUING OUR MISSION

Get the very best of California agriculture in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere with PCFMA. We organize over 50 weekly certified farmers' markets in more than 33 Bay Area communities. Each provides an economic outlet for Northern California family farms. Come by for a visit and get your delicious farm-fresh food direct from the people who grow it. Most of your fruits and veggies you’ll find have been picked within the last 48 hours.

Board of Directors

PCFMA is governed by a Board of Directors that guides our mission. Three are elected by the agricultural producers selling in PCFMA's farmers’ markets and the remaining positions are selected annually by current directors.
