Urban Village Farmers' Market Association

We are a Non-Profit Organization, formed in 1997, aimed to help build healthy communities by fostering direct economic and social ties between local producers and consumers.

Bringing Communities Together

Our role is to bring California’s agricultural and urban communities together for their mutual benefit, increased communication and shared education. Our presence as a key educational platform for schools, environmental causes, health and nutrition accessibility is a mission we are devoted to upholding.
