Video: The Sacramento Farmers Market Revisited

Today, I went to one of the Sacramento Farmers Markets located under the Capital City Freeway in Downtown Sacramento (at roughly 6th and W for the townies). This time, I came equipped with my new camera and shot the video above. It is much better quality and much longer than the previous video. I had previously written about this particular farmers market and the importance of farmers markets in general. However, since the Sacramento Farmers Market is one of the most popular search terms for my site, I feel that I should provide a little more information for our guests. So, here is the information on each of the 12 Sacramento Farmers Markets:

This was my first attempt at “video production,” so cut me some slack. Expect more videos to come now that I have my new digital camera.

    Thanks for the info on all of the local farmers markets. Does anyone know how to contact the Sacramento “under the freeway” farmers market folks about setting up a stand to sell flowers? A phone number or email address would be great.

    Hi Bill,

    Sorry, I’m slow to my email these days because of some big events in personal life. You should check out http://www.california-grown.com/ I think the info you’re looking for is on there. farmfresh (at] elkgrove.net looks to be the e-mail contact and the phone number is 688-0100.

    Hope this helps!

    The video is great. I had a recent post about the Sacramento Farmers Market under the freeway too, thought I’d share! Thanks!
