City of Arcadia Farmers' Market Every Sunday

Just in time for fall, the City of Arcadia will debut its new and certified Farmers’ Market, thanks to a partnership with Raw Inspiration, a local company that has organized similar events throughout the San Gabriel Valley.  The official City of Arcadia Farmers’ Market launches Sunday, September 8, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Arcadia Public Library parking lot, 20 W. Duarte Road, and will be held weekly on Sundays thereafter. 

Arcadia residents and visitors will now have a chance to enjoy traditional farmers’ market fare, including more than 30 vendors featuring flowers, prepackaged and prepared foods, fresh produce, artisanal breads, cheeses, meats, oils, and other craft vendors.  A weekly Market Kids Club will be present with offerings for children to enjoy special activities including music, art, and facts about healthy food and the importance of farming.    

“Farmers’ markets are an integral part of the urban/farm linkage and have continued to rise in popularity, mostly due to the growing consumer interest in obtaining fresh products directly from the farm,” said Mayor April Verlato.  “The Arcadia Farmers’ Market will allow residents to have access to locally grown, farm fresh produce.”

Arcadia’s new Farmers’ Market season will be year-round and will be held every Sunday, beginning September 8 and concluding in the summer of 2020. 

“Arcadia is a very special community and we are honored to bring this Farmers’ Market here for residents to enjoy,” said Melissa Farwell, Raw Inspiration’s Director of Coordination & Development.  “Sunday strolls through the market with family and friends is such a special weekly experience and we are excited to share that experience with Arcadia’s residents.”
