"Our vision is to create the best market
experience for both farmers and the community."

 

Farmer Mark cares about the health of food, farms, communities—and you! 

Fueled by a knowledge of the power of real food, a passion for healthy living and a background as a tomato farmer, Mark is dedicated to improving the well-being of all of them. He does so through his six certified farmers’ markets and the non-profit organization Sprouts of Promise. As Mark explains, "Our vision is to create the best market experience for both farmers and the community."

Mark serves on the Board of the State of California Certified Farmers’ Market Advisory Committee, which advises the Secretary of Agriculture, and has given a TEDx talk on how he “fell in love with a tomato.”
