The Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market Returns Downtown!
The Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market is celebrating our 10th anniversary and returning to downtown Turlock! Our 2019 season begins May 4th on Main Street between Palm and Center Street from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. The market features fresh produce, baked goods, and local artisans. Our goal is to create a marketplace that educates, informs, engages, and brings the community together through partnerships with local schools, community groups, and organizations. We want to educate our community about what it means to be “Always Local.”
With your support, we can grow our market and supply fresh, local, and healthy foods to help create a vibrant community!
We are a non-profit entity and organized by a volunteer board of directors.
The original farmers’ market opened in early 2010 in downtown Turlock, serving the community on Fridays. As we searched for a permanent location, a council member suggested placing the market near Westside neighborhoods to help benefit underserved areas and give students from Wakefield and Osborn elementary schools easy access for field trips. We found our original home on Broadway Street, where we operated for the first five seasons.
We relocated to Main Street between Center and Palm Streets in 2015 and made a long-awaited change to Saturday mornings, which was requested by our vendors. We kept the same 8 a.m.-1 p.m. hours, and pretty soon thousands of people were spending their Saturday mornings among a bounty of harvest-fresh produce from local family farms.
In 2016 TCFM made the move to the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, returning to the location of the very first melon festival in Turlock in 1912.
TCFM loves local art and artist of any type! Come share your talent with our community.
We are on the lookout for local entertainers. From bands and dance groups to balloon artists and street performers, if you have a talent to share with the community, please send us more info about what you do!
