It gives growers and customers a chance to interact with each other and provides the public with convenient access to fresh high quality California-grown produce. Farmers benefit by having another outlet to market their commodities, avoiding the middle man expenses associated with commercial preparation of products, and being able to sell specialty products more easily. Certified Farmers Markets are also enjoyable community events that bring in a variety of other small businesses, such as jewelry and craft vendors, prepared food sellers, and musicians.$0$0$0How do we certify agricultural producers?$0$0Orange County certified producers range from backyard growers to large scale farmers. We certify growers of fruits, vegetables, nuts, honey, eggs, nursery stock, and cut flowers. During a certification inspection, an Agricultural Inspector visits the farmer’s growing grounds, taking note of what is being grown and its condition. With the information collected, our office issues Certified Producer’s Certificates detailing what commodities the inspector has seen growing and at what quantity, the approximate expected yield, and the expected harvest season.$0$0What do we inspect at Certified Farmers Markets?$0$0During a Certified Farmers Market inspection our principal objective is to verify that each vendor has been certified as growing each agricultural product brought to market. The Certified Producer’s Certificate is the most important regulatory tool we have at the market, especially since we have growers from all over California selling at our local farmers markets.  We check the products being sold taking into account quality, seasons, and growing location to ensure that the commodities offered for sale were indeed grown by the producer. We also verify organic produce by examining organic registration documents issued by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.$0$0$0$0$0Related Links:$0$0$0Link to statewide Certified Farmer's Market listing$0$0$0$0$0    $0$0$0$0$0Sunday$0$0$0$0$0Laguna Niguel CFM    $027241 La Paz Rd.    $08:00 am – 12:00 pm     $0Manager: Michi Ward$0ocfb@sbcglobal.net    $0(714) 573-0374$0$0$0$0San Clemente Village CFM$0Avenida Del Mar & Seville    $09:00 am – 1:00 pm    $0Manager:  Rick & Sandy Heil$0rheil1111@cox.net    $0(949) 492-6000$0$0$0$0Newport Beach CFM    $0Base of the Newport Pier$0McFadden Square$09:00 am – 1:00 pm    $0Manager: Mark Anderson$0sproutsofpromise@gmail.com$0$0$0$0$0$0Local Harvest Garden Grove CFM$0Main & Garden Grove Boulevard$09:00 am – 2:00 pm$0Manager: Lee Ostendorf$0leeostendorf@charter.net$0(562) 498-6048$0$0$0$0Great Park CFM$0Sand Canyon/Marine Way in Irvine$010:00 am – 2:00 pm$0Manager: Mary Senske$0ocgpfm@verizon.net$0(949) 724-7403$0$0$0$0DTSA CFM$0Downtown Santa Ana Between 3rd St. and 4th St. and Bush St. and French St.$010:00 am – 2:00 pm$0Manager: Sonora Ortiz$0info@dtsafarmersmarket.com$0(619) 566-6720$0$0$0$0$0$0Cypress CFM$0Valley View & Orange Ave.$010:00 am – 2:00 pm$0Manager: Rick Palas$0RPALAS@VERIZON.NET$0(909) 630-6302$0$0$0$0$0$0$0$0$0Monday$0$0$0$0No Certified Farmer's Markets are open$0$0$0$0Tuesday$0$0$0$0$0Placentia CFM$0Placentia Town Center, Yorba Linda Blvd/N.
