       certified
Every Saturday, rain or shine, for 35 years, the Pomona Certified Farmers' Market has been selling fresh fruits and vegetables in the parking lot behind Purpose Church (formerly known as Pomona First Baptist Church).  This farmers' market offers day old bread at greatly reduced prices and participates in the Market Match program with doubles shoppers spending power  dollar for dollar up to $10 for those who participate in CalFresh, First5LA, WIC, SSI, SSDI, and SSA.  All the money earned from this market goes to support the work of Hope Partners the operational name for the Inland Valley Council of Churches.  Hope Partners includes a pantry outreach program, a crisis housing program to move people from homeless to housing with a job and food.
      Volunteers, like Pomona residents Fred and Dawn Van Allen, are always welcome.  Volunteers assist with educational and outreach activities at the market as well as with set up and tear down.   For more information contact Pamela Barrett at fourthebarretts@yahoo.com
