Pop-Up Breakfast Event: June 9th in Scotts Valley
We at the Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Markets miss no opportunity to celebrate around good food. Joining in the fun 2013-2017, we have hosted a series of pop-up, farm-to-table breakfast events at the Scott’s Valley and Westside FM each year. In the space of the markets, guests gather to sit down at a long table among friends and enjoy a fresh, multi-course meal prepared on-site. At each event admired local chefs serve up sensational mixes of simple cuisine made with seasonal ingredients from the very farms that sell at the market. Local youth leaders from food justice organization FoodWhat?! serve the fair while farmers mingle at the tables. Each event offers its own pleasing qualities: a wood-fired stove, seasonal blooms, fine charcutery. With each event we learn more about how to make this moment magical, connecting farmers, chefs, our local landscape and you. The 2018 schedule is still in the works – details will be announced this spring.
