Certified Farmers' Markets


What is a Certified Farmers' Market?
A certified farmers' market (CFM) is a location approved by the County Agricultural Commissioner where certified farmers offer for sale only those agricultural products they grow themselves, or products from another certified farmer.

What is a Certified Producer (Farmer)?
Inspectors from the Department of Agriculture, Weights and Measures inspect farms and other properties to verify what is raised or grown there. After satisfactorily meeting the requirements of the inspection, the farmer is certified for specific products. This certification allows the farmer to sell his produce at Certified Farmers' Markets.
