Certified Farmers’ Market

 Certified Farmers’ Markets (CFMs) are marketplaces that allow farmers to sell directly to the consumer.  A certified producer sells agricultural products of their own production.  Lightly processed agricultural products that are derived from the commodities grown or raised by the producer may also be sold at a CFM.  CFMs provide a diverse market that allows the consumer to directly interact with the farmer and learn how their food is produced.  The Tehama County Department of Agriculture enforces regulations that support CFMs including issuing Certified Producer Certificates, conducting CFM and producer site inspections, and investigating complaints.
