Downtown Santa Cruz Food Shed Project 2018

Location:Downtown Farmers' Market

The FoodShed Project (FSP) is an education and outreach program of the Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Markets (SCCFM) which, through public events at the markets, highlights the significant work being rolled out by farmers, food artisans and community partners in the nearest regions of our foodshed. Check out some photos to get a feel for these events.

Using the public space of the Downtown Farmers’ Market, FSP orchestrates monthly, summer events in which tastings, talks, music, DIY cooking demonstrations, and family-focused activities spotlight seasonal food items. At these events learn something new, make art, get your face painted, get serious (or goofy) about the foodshed fact hunt and listen to live music – all at the Downtown SC Market 3-5pm.
