PSA (long version):

The North Coast Growers’ Association invites the community to come out and celebrate our bounty of fresh, Humboldt grown and GMO free produce at the largest and most celebrated farmers’ market in Humboldt County: the Arcata Plaza Farmers’ Market!

Every family needs healthy fruits and vegetables to stay strong and happy. Farmers’ market fresh produce, meat, eggs, grains and beans contain the very highest quality vitamins and minerals available because they come direct from the fields to you.

The North Coast Growers’ Association believes that every family has the right to eat healthy and choose to invest in the local economy. CalFresh EBT cards are welcome at the farmers market and EBT customers receive extra bonus bucks to be spent on fruits and veggies through our Market Match program. Visit the info booth to hear more about Market Match or to get some expert CalFresh application assistance.

Featured in April: salad greens, beets, cabbage, leeks, mushrooms, artichokes, carrots, meat, eggs and honey. This is also a great place to gather starts and seeds for home gardens!

The Arcata Plaza market runs every Saturday through November from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“This can be your weekly chance to join your community and friends in celebration and support of our hard working farmers. Your visit supports the local economy and helps to strengthen the local food system.  Let your farmers know that you appreciate their dedication to sustainable and GMO free practices!

See you at the farmers’ market!”
