Meet Our Farmers: Regino's Farm

Posted by Corinne Monaco at May 20, 2020 03:59 PM |
We’re proud of Washington’s small farms, proud of the shoppers who support them, and proud of the work we do to create connections among these groups to help ensure that quality, local foods continue to be available to nourish the whole community. Ever wonder about your favorite farmer or vendor’s backstory? Read on and Meet Your Farmer.

Regino's Farm had their first season with the Neighborhood Farmers Markets at the Columbia City Market last year, and boy are we glad they joined us. Farmer Regino and his wife Martina specialize in strawberries and green beans, and both crops are spectacular. On a farm visit last year, we got to see their truly incredible strawberries up close and personal, and rows and rows of green beans ready to be picked. With the help of their children, this hard-working family grows produce to sell, as well as to nourish themselves. Their corn is almost exclusively for personal use, and they told us they use it for tortillas. 

Regino's Farm is among the original growers at Viva Farms, an incredible non-profit Farm Business Incubator and Training Program established in 2009. Their mission is to "empower aspiring and limited-resource farmers by providing bilingual training in holistic organic farming practices, as well as access to land, infrastructure, equipment, marketing and capital." Viva operates two locations in Skagit County Washington, and one in King County Washington, and they are currently incubating 24 independent farm business, seven of which are Latino owned. Learn more about all the amazing farmers at Viva and how you can support them here! 
Like many farmers that only join us at seasonal markets, Regino’s sold exclusively at the Columbia City Farmers Market. With spring ramping up and summer just around the corner, we are thinking of our farmers that would normally be joining us about now.
