Orange Home Grown Farmers & Artisans Market
Orange Home Grown is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that runs and manages the Saturday Certified Farmers and Artisans Market in the heart of Old Towne Orange. The Certified Farmers Market is open rain-or-shine every Saturday from 9am to 1pm on the parking lot of Chapman University’s Becket Building (303 W. Palm Avenue). Featuring farmers & food artisans offering locally grown fruits & vegetables, sustainably sourced eggs, meat, seafood, cheese, baked goods & other artisan products. We are a healthy food based market. Food must be prepackaged to be sold on site. Local handmade craft artisans are invited to participate in the market every November and December. Live music, kid’s club, yoga classes, cooking demos, pet-sitting, market tours, EBT & food trucks make this a must visit Saturday spot for the whole community. The location has been generously donated by Chapman University, along with complimentary coffee and pastries each Saturday. Come spend your mornings with us! Orange Home Grown is a proud member of the Farmers Market Coalition and the California Alliance of Farmers Markets.

The market continues to be a well-loved event in the City of Orange. “It’s great to see the community come together and show support for our local vendors,” says Executive Chef Gabbi Patrick, who is a huge supporter of the Farmers Market. “On any given Saturday at the market, you can find residents, chefs, store owners, city officials and students shopping.”

“We’ve gotten such positive feedback on the food tours we provide to the Orange Home Grown Farmer’s Market,” says Renee Dallas of Old Towne Orange Walking Food Tours, which visits regularly. “In fact, week after week we run into people we’ve introduced to the market coming back to shop, lingering over coffee and getting some great fresh produce. There’s a unifying effect on the community too, as I think just about everyone here can come together over healthy food, locally grown; celebrated in this historical area we all feel connected to.”
