Pea Shelling Contest at Freedom Farmers Market

CELEBRATING 11 YEARS!

Re-opens Saturday, July 13th 2024

The Freedom Farmers' Market serves as a gathering place that is creating harmony while offering a variety of produce, fruits, and healthy foods. People come to the Market not only to shop, but to socialize and to reconnect with a history that ties food to land, culture and community building.

Location: 4521 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA

By supporting farmers markets, you support a local economy and healthier sustainable agroecosystem.  We believe that farmers markets are strategies communities can use to empower themselves to eat healthier.
