Culver City Farmers’ Market
August 10 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
MEET THE MARKET’S GENERAL MANAGER
Cynthia Ojeda was selected by the city to lead operations and renew the mission of the Culver City Farmers’ Market starting in October 2017. A Southern California native, Ms. Ojeda has over 20 years of experience in the industry of certified farmers’ markets in the Los Angeles area. Embracing early on in her career the fundamentals of certified farmers’ markets, she has a passion for growers rights and farmers’ market integrity. Having served on California’s Department of Food and Agriculture Integrity Task Force Committee and also co-founding a farmers’ market non-profit organization, the Association of Certified Farmers’ Markets (ACFM), she has worked for two decades to help shape and direct the future of certified farmers’ markets. She also assisted with the re-drafting of provisions in AB 1871 to reinstate the Direct Marketing Program which was established in 1978 to enable small farmers to sell produce directly to the public.

In addition to Culver City’s Farmers’ Market Cynthia also operates La Cienega Farmers’ Market and the farmers’ market at Kaiser Permanente’s West LA campus. When Cynthia isn’t overseeing every detail at one of her markets she loves cooking and gardening and she and her husband Jed love to support local musical acts around LA and walk with their dogs by the beach.
