Big Bear Farmers Market

Big Bear Farmers Market  introducing the fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers all summer long. You can enjoy unique arts, crafts and handmade items by local Artisan. Every Tuesday from April 4th until September 26th.

The High Desert Farmers Market was started July 1992. As an agricultural student at Victor Valley College, Kerri Santoro had top grades. Her instructor, Bob Adams, appointed her president of the College ‘s Ornamental Horticulture Club. Remember, dollars spent locally are circulated within our community. And the health benefits are tangible, too. Produce grown nearby is ripened longer, offering has more nutritional value. Imported produce is usually picked hard and green, sprayed with chemicals to ripen it, and then shipped for three weeks!!!

To help people develop a healthier relationship between mind, body and soul, the High Desert Farmers Market offers education and information that teaches how to shop for, store and cook fresh food. If food is just made available, people aren’t going to benefit from it.

They need to know how.High Desert Farmers Market is licensed to accept SNAP, aka “food stamps,” “EBT,” and also senior WIC. Much more is planned for the future, like a “produce box” program for working folks, delivered directly to the office . Food handling, preparation tips, cooking classes, field trips, special events, and health awareness are all in the works.

The fruits and vegetables you buy at the farmers market are the freshest and tastiest available. Fruits are allowed to ripen fully in the field and are brought directly to you—no long-distance shipping, no gassing to simulate the ripening process, no sitting for weeks in storage. This food is as real as it gets—fresh from the farm.
From the Farmers garden to your home to make good meals for breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner.
Enjoying the meals while benefiting the healthiest,freshness and satisfying products that we bought from Big Bear Farmers Market. So get out of the summer heat and smog and visit the Big Bear Farmers Market!!!!
