Catalán Family Farm
What we buy: Celery, Strawberries
This 48 acre family owned and operated farm grows some of the most delicious strawberries we’ve ever tasted. When we visited in May, we also had the pleasure of seeing kale, baby celery and tomato plants, fava, goats, chickens, lettuces, oregano, leeks, beets, garlic, artichokes, carrots and more.
Juan, pictured below with Derek and I, is as knowledgable and friendly as they come. His mother, Maria Catalán got her start farming at the Rural Development Center (now ALBA) in Salinas, and started her family farm operation in Hollister in 2001.
You can find them at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Thursdays and Saturdays. We currently use their celery in the Octet and the Hare, as well as their strawberries in the Paramour and the Hummingbird.
