We make the Camarillo Farmers market the ultimate spot to find local, sustainable fresh food, flowers and plants in Ventura County. And we do so by having a wide variety of local farms at the market to connect directly to you.

Adaboy Acres

Acosta Farm, Nursery & Vineyard

559-920-8131

It all started with our Dad in the 1930s. He spent his whole life growing table grapes. Our date and older brother started participating in the Farmers Market in the 1980s.

In 2015, my brother and I purchased property to grow unusual flavors — and different shapes — of grapes. We also work with the University of Arkansas and have a nursery to be a cultivar for them. We’ve also picked up grapes from all over the world to grow on our farm. We work with two grape breeders to develop new varieties of table grapes.

Our farm has three major goals — to bring new table grapes varieties, sell plants through our nursery, and showcase the new varieties in the Farmers Market systems.
