Backyard Grown Farms and Harvest Gathering Farm recently left the Topanga Farmers’ Market due to low sales. We will miss these wonderful farms along with Lorne, Guido, Emilio, Christian, and Claudio. They brought their passion and nourishing foods to our community and for this, we are grateful.
Early this summer we began a dedicated search for new farms and are making good progress. We have interest from a biodynamic produce farm in Malibu and have reached out to Autonomy Farms for pastured meats and eggs. It’s challenging to find organic farms that are willing to commit to a small market, but we are hopeful that the Topanga community will show support and provide the opportunity for our market to succeed. It’s up to us to collectively decide that we want a local certified farmers’ market.
Presently, we have an amazing selection of seasonal organic fruit by Etheridge Farm and Pedro’s Organic Ranch; artisan-prepared foods that include Aris sheep’s milk yogurt, Danny’s dairy-free almond cashew yogurt; Smart Fish sustainable fish; Green Maya single origin coffees; Chakra Organics raw activated nuts and nut butters & CBD tinctures; Raw Revelations natural remedies, nutrient dense food sources and supplements; Zona Little Italy Italian specialty foods; Me Gusta Tamales; beautiful handmade crafts, a Children’s Storytime; and many talented local musicians who donate their time each week to play for us.
Join us Fridays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Topanga Community Club, 1440 N. Topanga Canyon Boulevard. We need your support!
