Local Experiences Organized by High Desert Farmers Market

The team over at High Desert Farmers Market is responsible for both the Big Bear Farmers and Craft Market right in town as well as the nearby market in Victorville. The mission of the High Desert Farmers Market is to create a harmonious and festive atmosphere for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. Farmers markets in the area are always designed for family-friendly outings with a focus on community, social interaction, and promoting healthy living options while showcasing local growers and producers. The creation of the High Desert Farmers Market dates back to 1992 when it was first formed by agricultural student Kerri Santoro who attended Victor Valley College. Putting together a state-certified farmers market was a priority for Santoro who wanted to do something that was good for the community and would highlight the agricultural department and the surrounding industry. Over time, the popularity of the local markets grew and today, both provide a wonderful place for people to gather, celebrate local small businesses, and invest in healthy living.
