Porterville Farmer's Market

Sierra View Medical Center welcomes you to the 5th Annual Farmer’s Market where you can purchase seasonal produce and goods, learn about community resources, receive health education, and grab a bite to eat.

During the summer months and in the cooler hours of the day, every week local patients, community members, and employees visit the farmer’s market to peruse booths filled with fruits and vegetables, prepared food, baked goods, and enjoy the easy going outdoor event. Children are welcome too, as there will be fun activities for them to enjoy as well!

Join us every Thursday morning from 8 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.

To double the value of nutritional benefits, up to $10 per market, ask about our Market Match program when you arrive. EBT, WIC and Senior vouchers are all eligible to receive matching funds to shop for fresh fruits and vegetables at the Farmer’s Market.

Brought to you by the hospital and the City of Porterville is the Healthy Bucks program. Healthy Bucks are distributed to patients and community members at each market; giving away 70 at 8 a.m. and 9:15 a.m., and 40 at 10:30 a.m. Each guest is limited to two $2 Healthy Bucks per week.

Visit the information booth at the market to find out more details about all discounts and programs.

The market serves to strengthen local community ties and offers a seasonal outdoor event to the very people that the hospital serves. We thank the City of Porterville and the Visalia Farmer's Market for making this possible and to all the vendors and local farmers who participate in a big way!
