55 Fresh is the belief that our "local" farmers' markets should be just that - local. Local produce grown by local farmers, and local artisans selling their local wares.
San Luis Obispo county is roughly 55 miles long so that became the range in which to define our "local" vendor criteria.
In the spirit of the "Buy Local" concept, we give preference to farmers and artisans that grow and create within a 55 mile radius of the market.
From San Miguel to the north and Solvang to the south, 55 Fresh is the new benchmark of a truly "local" farmers' market on the Central Coast.
Also know that our market will never allow genetically modified organism (GMO) produce for sale . . . ever. Our farmers grow in the field and not in the lab!
