What an awesome, complete list - exactly what I was looking for. And organized exactly the way that I'd want it to be. Thank you so much! :D

This list is incomplete! Please add the wonderful and growing Friday 11:00-2:00 Farmers Market in Simi Valley at the Regal Theater parking lot. Great local vendors we need to support :-)

March 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCara

Cara, do you have a website or contact information for that Friday Farmers' Market in Simi Valley?

March 13, 2012 | Registered CommenterConejo Joe

Cara, thank you for posting about the FM by Regal! I couldn't remember the day.

Hi,

Any of these farmer's markets sell grass-fed beef?

May 10, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMehul

Mehul that I don't know specifically. Best to contact or visit the individual farmers' markets. I suspect you'd find some of that at the stores though. Most of what I see at the markets are product and some baked items, tamales, flowers, etc. But ya never know!

May 10, 2013 | Registered CommenterConejo Joe

Got you, thanks!

May 10, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMehul

In response to Mehul, best place to buy grass fed beef is Noyes Market on Los Angeles Av close
to 4th st. Simi Valley. It's straight off the ranch!

June 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterM

They have grass fed beef from Novy Ranch in Nor Cal. Expensive stuff but ask for the "off" cuts like hanger, flank, brisket to get a better deal. Whole foods also always has grass fed beef.

July 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDan

Fantastic new Farmers Market at the Simi Valley Town Center on Friday's from 4:30 PM to 8:30
Friday August 30th "Ticket to Ride" A Beatles tribute band will be doing a concert in the center court yard at the Simi Valley town Center during the market. http://www.tickettoridelive.com/

Is there a Farmer's Market in Simi Valley? I tried going to the one I've seen on Tapo Canyon and it was gone two weeks ago.

March 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterB

B, there's the Friday Farmers' Market at Simi Valley Town Center: Fridays 4 pm to 8:30 pm at Simi Valley Town Center Center Court. Features local/organic produce, entertainment, kids' activities and more. www.farmersmx.com

The other Friday Simi Valley FM from 11am to 3pm on Fridays near TGI Fridays is still there, according to market sponsors. Perhaps it was closed a few weeks ago due to the rains.

(From 1000 Oaks}
Do you know where I may purchase young "baby" ginger root? --it's a cream & pink color, verses the paper bag brown-color on older ginger root.

April 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMichele Rutkowski

Hi Michele - That is not a question I have the answer to. I guess your best bet is to contact or visit the individual farmers' market and/or stores. Thanks for posing such a unique question! :)
