Modesto Certified Farmers Market supports TCFM

We are aware that establishing a place in the community takes trust and is accomplished through years of hard work. The Modesto Certified Farmers Market has been operating for the last 37 years in the same location as a result of said trust. We feel we have a loyal customer and vendor base because of this stability. Establishing that base has taken years of constantly tailoring the market to the needs of the community and customer base.

The Greenery supports non-profit farmers' market

This letter is written in support of the Turlock Certified Farmers' Market. The Greenery sincerely appreciates the hard work by volunteers to develop the market over the past several years. As a local business, we understand the dedication and hard work it takes to create and grow an event like the farmers' market, as well as rally local support year after year. We feel that TCFM is composed of hard-working individuals that have worked hard merely for the cause of the market.

Vendor in support of Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market

I want to express the experience I had with the Turlock farmers' market of 2015. It was my first year as a vendor and it was a wonderful and fun event! It was extremely organized, stress-free and supportive, and a happy place to be. I looked forward to each Saturday with excitement and gratitude. The community was brought closer together and folks from surrounding towns fell in love with our market, and therefore our town! It was a win for vendors, customers, businesses and the town as a whole.

Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market belongs to community

I thoroughly enjoy our current downtown farmers' market. Saturday mornings during the market season is a treat for me. Prior to opening my shop downtown, I treat myself to a cup of coffee while I walk among the various local produce stands, food stands, and craft booths. Can this be replicated by another individual or group? Perhaps. But, I stand with the Turlock Certified Farmers' Market. Why? In short, because the staff and board of directors have created something special. Our market, and I call it "ours" because it belongs to our community, offers locally grown, locally sourced, locally created ...

Keep our Turlock Certified Farmers Market

I am still in disbelief that the Turlock City Council is considering changing the Turlock Certified Farmers Market from a non-profit with local vendors to a farmers market for-profit with vendors outside of the area. If the market changes, that surely will mean the prices will rise, the quality of the fruits and vegetables will not be as fresh and local businesses will not have a local farmers' market to sell their produce. Shouldn't the City Council support the local businesses and let the people enjoy the benefits of our TCFM?

Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market a boon for community

I am writing to support the Turlock Certified Farmers' Market and offer my perspective as the current manager of TCFM. In 2013, I was hired by the TCFM Board to serve as the market manager. My primary responsibilities include weekly on-site management of the market, vendor recruitment and support, maintaining market compliance, arranging entertainment and community activities for the market, and answering inquiries from potential vendors, customers, community members and the media.

I want farmers market to be more than big

I support the Turlock Certified Farmers Market as it has connected my family and me with many local farmers. I love knowing about the food I buy, who grew it, what's in season - and, knowing that I'm supporting local farmers.

Turlock Certified Farmers’ Market supports local growers

The Board of the Turlock Certified Farmers' Market supports Peter Cipponeri's interest in operating a for-profit farmers market in Turlock. It seems reasonable that the city of Turlock could support two farmers markets; especially with the business model each brings to the community. Mr. Cipponeri's business model is..."a year-round market which includes expanding the current TCFM vendor radius to draw in more certified growers throughout the state and to facilitate more competition at the market to lower prices and maintain a steady flow of goods...'I'm going to have enough produce so you don't have ...

Farmers market: If it ain't broke, don't fix it

My wife Ellie and I of Ellie & Charley's Natural Garden, a small organic produce farm in Patterson, are just one of many participants of the Turlock Certified Farmers Market. We have been doing farmers markets for almost 25 years and were shocked to learn that the City of Turlock wants to place the established Turlock Farmers Market venue up for grabs. This is very unusual and unheard of.

Fusion Charter students grateful for acts of kindness

The holidays should be a joyful time for all youth. For some parents of Aspiranet's Fusion Charter students, budgets are very tight not allowing for gifts to be purchased during the holidays. The teens from these homes were asked to understand family issues and often encouraged to celebrate their younger siblings' Christmas wishes when it comes to gifts. When Covenant Village and Turlock Irrigation District learned that this was a reality for our students, they were inspired to support a gift drive for Fusion Charter. The generosity of these two organizations brought our students great happiness and parents' peace ...
