The Farmers Market offers fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, honey, fish, flowers, plants, nuts and bread. It is operated by the nonprofit Fullerton Certified Farmers Market Board. The market was first located at the old Ford School property (now Ford Park) at the intersection of Wilshire and Richman avenues. As the market grew in size and popularity, it was moved to Woodcrest Park at Richman and Orangethorpe Avenue. To accommodate the market’s growth both in terms of goods offered and customers it was moved to its current location at Independence Park in February 2007.
The market, believed to be the oldest farmers’ market in Orange County, is renowned for the freshness of its produce and its wide variety of fruits, vegetables, plants and flowers – many of which cannot be found at local supermarkets. The vendors/farmers make the trek weekly to Fullerton from as far away as Brawley to the south and Fresno to the north, and many have established friendships with their long-time customers.
