Farmer's Market at Children's Garden

The Farmers Market at Modesto Children’s Garden is a fun place to buy delicious, farm-fresh produce, vegetable plants, fruit, citrus and eggs… but it’s so much more! The market provides many additional benefits to area kids and families, including:

  • Young people can have booth space to market their handmade products.
  • Selling their goods gives kids a sense of belonging and a feeling of responsibility. 
  • Crop sales help fund our life-changing programs.
  • It provides a safe environment for fun family outings and connecting with friends or making new ones.
  • Stories told to others about trips to the Farmers Market increase awareness about Modesto Children’s Garden and its mission.
  • Families can volunteer while they enjoy the farmer’s market too! There’s always something that needs done at Children’s Garden so just jump in and help us!


If you’d like to support the Farmer’s Market by volunteering or making a donation, or you want to apply for booth space, please contact Jessica Coleman [email protected].

From skies to soil


We’re pleased to say that with your support, our efforts over more than a decade to draw attention to Valley Children’s Hospital have helped raise awareness of their services and the amazing work they do. And now, the Pelandale Specialty Care Center is providing even easier access to health services in our area.

But our work’s not done!

We’ve shifted our focus to another critical children’s issue: the unrelenting epidemic of childhood obesity. Learn about the many ways Modesto Children’s Garden [link] is helping address it—through our children’s programs, Farmers Market, beautiful event spaces and more.

Then join us on this journey and become part of the solution!
