Interested in joining the
Santa Barbara Farmer's Market?
The Santa Barbara Certified Farmers' Market Association operates 6 certified markets a week, year-round. We are a producer-owned association registered as a non-profit mutual benefit corporation with the State of California, acting as a direct marketing outlet for local farmers, ranchers, and fisherman.
All applicants who complete the farmer application must obtain a certified producer's certificate from their counties Agricultural Commissioner's Office before submitting the application form. Obtaining a certified producers' certificate and submitting an application does not guarantee entry into our markets. Space is very limited to new applicants at most of our market locations.
NOTE: Our markets do not permit multiple certified producers' certificates per seller, nor do we allow the sale of crafts, jewelry, clothing, or other such non-food items. Prepared foods from non-farming entities are also not permitted for sale (one must personally grow/farm at least the main ingredient in any Non-Agricultural item offered for sale, and space for such products is incredibly limited.)
All of our markets are approved for the Non-Certified Agricultural products including dairy, meats, poultry, and wine. One must personally raise the animals when selling meat and dairy products, as well as grow the grapes for wine sales. Non-agricultural products, including seafood direct from area fisherman, are limited as well. Buying and reselling of any products is not permitted.
