Scotts Valley Farmers’ Market (Last of the Season)
November 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, repeating until November 17, 2018
LAST SCOTTS VALLEY FARMERS’ MARKET OF THE SEASON
Every Saturday 9am-1pm, spring, summer and fall, the Scotts Valley Community Center parking lot will be transformed into a bustling place of commerce and neighborly exchanges. As each weekend arrives a group of some of the finest farms and food artisans around will set up their stands to offer shoppers and diners a great selection of edibles. Connecting residents directly with local farms, the Market is a resource for agricultural education and provides a community gathering place for families, friends and neighbors. Known for its focus on regional growers, the Scotts Valley Market showcases organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, pasture-raised eggs and meats, flowers, breads, seafood, pastries and ready-to-eat cuisine.
We’ll be celebrating opening day with FREE blueberry short cake and an array of festivities. Stop in at the Mountain Feed and Farm Supply DIY workshop on healthful blueberry soda making, join the SV Public Library for story time in the Market, enjoy some live music, get your face painted and do some grocery shopping while you’re at it.
New this season, visit the Scotts Valley Meat and Dairy Hub. A collaboration between multiple ranches, here you can purchase pasture-raised Fiesta Farm pork, chicken and eggs, Leftcoast beef and Schoch Farm milk, yogurt and cheese. Serendipity Farm joins with blueberries, avocados, flowers and an array of high quality veggie driven spreads and dips. Old House Farm offers a special match all season for CalFresh participants – buy two vegetable/herb starts, take two more for free. Buy three starts and take three for free. Keep your eyes out for a table featuring various local artisans including Copper Moon Apothecary with specialty body products, Ashby Confections with artisanal chocolates and farm-to-fruit sour strips and Vida Juice selling fermented, refreshing, flavorful drinks.
Every week the Scotts Valley Market offers a Kids Zone in the center of the market where little ones can play and get into art projects. Visible from every corner of the market, parents can keep one eye on the kiddos and the other on that fresh bread, cup of coffee or basket of raspberries.
A weekly music program featuring local bluegrass and country blues bands keeps the feet stompin’.
