Market Updates
It's the last Hollywood Farmers Market of the year, and the rows will be packed with farmers, ranchers, foragers, bee keepers, bakers, distillers, and artisan food makers. This Saturday is the final market of December, and we re-open in the new year on January 5th, 2019.

It may be mid-December, but we still have over 40 vendors coming with carefully harvested and prepared food for you to enjoy through the winter season. Find giant winter squash for stuffing, flavorful roots for roasting, shredding, and souping, colorful chicories for brightening up your winter salads, and earthy mushrooms for adding flavor to any meal of the day.

Still seeking a great gift for someone in your life? You can find a range of hand crafted and often delicious options right at the market. From hot sauce, to goats milk and bees wax soaps, to a bottle of spicy chai or locally made liquor, find something unique and useful. This is the last market we will be joined by a small selection of craft vendors offering artfully made pottery and wooden wares.

Of course you can always come right to the market Information Booth and purchase tokens to give as gift certificate or stocking stuffer, or buy an HFM tote bag, hat, T-shirt, or apron for the farmers market fan in your life.
Since 2010, our SNAP match program has provided over $140,000 to thousands of recipients, enabling them to afford shopping at the farmers market. Earlier this year, the federal grant that had funded the program went away, endangering the future of the SNAP match at our farmers market.

We need your help to keep this crucial program going - to make sure the farmers market remains accessible for everyone.

Our goal is to raise at least $3000 by the end of the year - and we are almost halfway there! You can join our effort by making a gift to our year-end SNAP Match fundraiser today .

We can also happily accept donations by cash or check at the farmers market information booth tomorrow. The info booth is located on the north side of Hancock Street, where the musicians' tent is during the summer.

Please give today - because everyone deserves to eat healthy, fresh, local food.
