A certified producer is an individual or entity whose "farming activities" have been verified by the County Agricultural Commissioner, and who has obtained a Certified Producers Certificate (CPC). Inspection of the production location(s) is necessary to verify that the producer has practiced the agricultural arts and produced the fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables, shell eggs, honey, nursery stock, and cut flowers.
Only a certified producer may sell the certified agricultural products listed above at a Certified Farmers' Market (CFM). They may also sell other agricultural products they have produced. A Certified Producer is exempt from size, standard pack, container, and most labeling requirements.
Are you a home Gardener interested in selling at the Market? But unsure how the Certification Process works?
