This local market is the place for the the Scotts Valley community to get their fill of fresh, healthy, locally grown fruits and vegetables. During the summer months, SCCFM music series showcases local music and there is a shaded cafe seating area, along with space for the young ones to hang out and play. The market provides unlimited free parking and is located next to Sky Park and is across the from the new Scotts Valley Library.
Watch it Grow!
Come by the Scotts Valley Farmers’ Market any Saturday with the kids and have an opportunity to get your hands dirty! It’s a simple event but totally fun and everyone learns something new. We set up a bunch of tables, provide a big tub of planting soil, provide pots, seeds and show everyone how to grow food. Come back to the market weekly and see your progress. Let the kids get their hands dirty and learn some great lessons about where food comes from, how it grows and how much fun it is. This is an ongoing, evolving educational project, so each week there will be something new. Visit the market, purchase your fresh produce, listen to live music and have some fun. We plan on starting up this program in mid May 2013.
The market provides parents a centrally located shaded spot in the market that their kids can hang out, draw, play with toys, read and work on their best socialization skills with other young ones.
