When did we launch the Market?
On Sunday, July 5th 2020, we kicked off the Lomita Farmers Market with a great turn out — even during a pandemic! Although we didn’t plan a big shindig around the market, the Mayor of Lomita and almost all of the city council members shopped the market (and in fact, we still see them there frequently on Sundays). We launched with tons of Fresh Certified Produce and other vendor booths, along with masks, hand sanitizing stations and social distancing in place.
What’s next for the Market?
We had big plans for the Market when we started planning awhile ago but due to public health orders during the pandemic, we had to modify the Market a bit for the safety of everyone. Now that we’re hopefully getting back on track, we’ve since added live music on the last Sunday of the month and hope to continue to expand the Market with more local bands, other food and beverage vendors and businesses who are eager to come and help celebrate our community.
How can you support the Market?
Over the past year, we’ve started to attract loyal and consistent shoppers who come to the Market each week for their favorite items! And often are able to walk from home to the Market, just down the road at City Hall. We’re so grateful to our community for coming out to support the Market. BUT we need your help to continue to spread the word to your friends and neighbors and to shop there when you can. If we don’t have enough shoppers for our vendors to survive or thrive at the Market, they may not come back. With a thriving and steady flow of shoppers each week, we can continue to invite even more unique farmers, food vendors, and specialty products to keep things interesting at the Market.
Your Health & Safety Matters… for Everyone
While you’re at the Market, please follow all posted health protocols which may include wearing a mask, maintaining social distance, hand sanitizing or other requirements based on public health orders in effect at the time.
How we got here…
In general, Farmers markets reconnect communities to their food system. They create an opportunity where farmers can simultaneously sell fresh, local food and serve as food educators, revitalizing the way consumers shop and eat.
The Lomita Chamber of Commerce conducted a Farmers Market Survey to determine if there was a desire to bring a Farmers Market to Lomita and when it should be held and received over 1000 responses.
Lomitians spoke out strongly in favor of a local Farmers Market. Many mentioned that they wanted a way to connect with their neighbors, to have a place to spend the day with their kids and family members. To experience live entertainment, shop for the weeks fresh produce and find healthy ready-to-eat and tasty options.
The Lomita Chamber of Commerce listened and organized a weekly event that we hope checks all of those boxes. We hired a Farmers Market Manager and invited not just Chamber members but even non-members to reserve a booth space.
Thank you to our community. We’ll see you at the Market!
