Our Story


The Corona del Mar Certified Farmers Market was founded in 1996 by  and Sandy and Rick Heil. The Market is dedicated to bringing the freshest produce to the Corona del Mar community. 

All of the farmers who sell at the market are certified by the  Orange County Department of Agriculture. The farmers grow all of the produce themselves and work tirelessly to bring our costumers the best products around. 

From flowers to rare seasonal veggies to baked goods and more, our Certified Farmers Market is the best place to get everything you need for the upcoming week. Once our costumers start coming to the market, it becomes a beloved part of their weekly routine. 



From its inception, Rick Heil has managed the Corona del Mar Certified Farmers Market. In it's 22 years, the market has continued to be an ideal place for vendors and costumers.  Mr. Heil is continually  examining nearby market farmers and thoughtfully considering costumer feedback as he strives to serve the community of Corona del Mar. 

With over 20 years of farmers market management experience, Mr. Heil has earned the respect and admiration of not only the community, but most importantly of the farmers.  Through sound policy and standard implementation by Mr. Heil, the Corona del Mar Certified Farmers Market has thrived.
