Video: What Makes Sacramento America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital?

Sacramento is America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital, but it’s more than a tagline – it’s a way of life that has existed from the early days of the city – and it’s now being recognized on a national level.

In the video below, we interviewed local farmers, chefs, elected officials and other advocates about what it means to be America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. From urban farms to ethically and sustainably raised livestock, Sacramento restaurants and farmers markets are full of a wide variety of the best ingredients in the world.

The region produces so much food that it exports the vast majority of its produce all over the world – including 80 percent of the world’s almond supply, and it even sends sushi rice to Japan.
