Celebrate Health & Wellness

Join Living Fit OC every month for "Health & WellnessDay" at the Market; a truly unique experience where we bring together local and organic farmers, fitness trainers, yoga instructors, healthy chefs plus much more. We will be conducting all sorts of cooking demos as well as yoga sessions, kid’s activities and giveaways! We also set up exclusive QR Codes -- the little square bar codes you can scan with your smartphone -- on all the stands, so you can scan and find out unique recipes for your favorite produce, as well as how long that particular whole food will be in season. Rain or shine meet us at SoCo Farmers' Market the first Saturday of the month, and at the Newport BeachFarmers' Market the last Sunday of the month. Want to be a vendor? Click here

On November 10th we will be 2 years old, and we have quite the surprise waiting for you. So mark that day in your calendar, as we would love nothing more than having you to celebrate with us. We love the way you make us feel and we love this video by Rebel Studios who capture the magic of our market. Take a moment to watch this Farmers' Market Video then share with a friend, and help our market grow!

Mash it up with our Mashed Millet and Cauliflower Cake! Millet is an ancient grain, full of protein, nutrients, and fiber too. Add to it cauliflower from Jeronimo at Gaytan Farms, coconut oil, and Alderwood Sea Salt form Savory Spice. This is a kid tested recipe with similar flavors like mashed potatoes, that can be made in advance. There’s 100 and 1 ways for you to mash it up and add SoCo Farmers Market toppings, including an almond meal crust from Hopkins AG. Come to the market to see Anais Tangie demo this dish at 12:00 this Saturday. We will give you a recipe. You just get the veggies.

We always encourage you to ask questions and know where your food is coming from. When you get produce and meats at our market you know that it is Certified California Grown produce, and that it is clearly labeled Certified Organic when appropriate. This November California voters will make a decision that could have broad implications for food producers throughout the country: whether or not to require labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food.  Ask questions when it involves what you put in your body, you can choose.  Learn more about Proposition 37.
