AIM is creating a world-class community gathering place dedicated to celebrating and educating about local and regional food and farms! The Marin Farmers Market and Center for Food and Agriculture will make healthy, locally and regionally grown food more accessible to people of all ages, abilities and economic capacities and educate eaters and farmers about sustainable practices in farming and food production.
AIM currently manages seven Certified Farmers Markets in the Bay Area and represents over 300 family farms, specialty food purveyors, and artisans. We are committed to quality over quantity when it comes to farmers markets and are working diligently to build the most productive markets for our participating members that best reflect the communities they serve.
AIM believes the success of the small family farm depends on eaters who understand the value and joys of local agriculture. AIM’s market-based educational programs engage thousands of children and adults each year. Sign up here for one or all three of our programs including: Diggin’ the Market Tours at the Farmers Market, Diggin’ in the Classroom and Farm Field Studies.

BAY AREA CHEFS flock to the Farmers Market because of the beautiful array of our region’s delicious vegetables, fruits, dairy products, meats, and more. But also for the direct connections – with food and with farmers – that are only possible at the farmers market. Enjoy truly fresh and local food at these fine Bay Area restaurants.
