Sacramento is at the center of one of the most productive agriculture regions of the world. Home to nearly 8,000 acres of small family farms, Sacramento and nearby counties generate approximately $3.4 billion in sales of wine grapes, tomatoes, milk, nuts, rice, and other produce.
Recently proclaimed “America’s farm-to-fork capital,” our city is thoroughly poised to take our status as an internationally recognized food center to the next level with a Sacramento Public Market as the centerpiece of the city’s celebrated agriculture.
Over the past decade cities around the country have seen their public markets become extraordinarily valuable civic amenities for residents, a resource for local schools and a symbol of community pride and vitality. Similarly, a public market in Sacramento will seize the enormous economic, cultural, and educational opportunities in our region, guided by a community already behind the city’s thriving food scene, increasing tourism, creating jobs, and supporting small businesses.
Please join us in this campaign to make a new Sacramento Public Market the next great landmark for our city and region.
