Vendors The Valinda Farmers Market not only serves community residents by providing healthier, fresher produce, it also serves the community by stimulating the economy; The Valinda La Puente Farmers Market creates business opportunities for small, family-owned California farms and for local entrepreneurs, artisans and food vendors. When you shop at our markets, you are generating income that will stay within the borders of the State of California, within the borders of your own community. Your patronage is priceless.

To learn more about our current vendors, or if you are interested in becoming a vendor, contact us at (323) 263-4462.

Certified California Farmers We guarantee you that the produce you buy at the Valinda La Puente Farmers Market is grown in the State of California, not imported from another state or country where it is at high risk of salmonella or e. coli contamination. It also translates to saving you money, since the farmer sells it directly to you, the consumer. Moreover, it means that it's tastier, fresher, healthier, hormone-free and pesticide-free. If it's sold this week at Valinda La Puente Farmers Market, the produce was most likely picked during the beginning of the same week.

Visit the Farmers Market to smell, see and taste the difference in our Southern California farm land produce.

Food Vendors The Flavors of Valinda La Puente Food Court features delicious, local and ethnically diverse cuisine and other pre-packaged food products. We make our best effort to ensure that our food vendors feature healthy choices for the public, ranging from wheat pita chips and hummus to pupusas, salsa and beans prepared with grape seed oil, as well as fresh-off-the-roaster peanuts. Customers get a chance to try well-known, traditional dishes with a healthy twist, as well as foods they may never have tried before, but which are equally delicious and most of all very healthy.

Artisans Each week VELAS Farmers Markets provide a venue for local artisans to sell their original hand-made works to the public. Most artisans make their own products, but some bring them hand-made from other countries. All products are original, high-quality and guaranteed to please the eyes. There is something for all styles and tastes.
