Del Paso Organic Farmers Market Original Blog (2006)
Our goal is to develop a European-style marketplace that is unique to Sacramento and is desirable to an
expanding, aware, diverse audience of food loving, health conscious shoppers. The Del Paso Organic
Farmers Market will be open 7 days a week. On Saturday, the market expands to display canopy covered
rows of organic produce, and a small stage that will feature local entertainment and guest speakers
discussing healthy food and cooking. The 7500-sq. ft. indoor everyday space will feature exclusive
purveyors of meat and poultry, fish, eggs, baked goods, organic staples (grains, nuts, rice, etc...)
and a cafe. This provides the community with a much needed, high quality market and a gathering
place to enrich and inform.
The Del Paso Organic Farmers Market is located at the ideal intersection between Arden, Highway 5, and
Highway 80. This location represents accessibility for rich or poor, informed restauranteur or food novice.
It will meet the needs of everyday shopping, and offer a rich, layered European marketplace experience.
