Apple a Day Festival September 14th!
Apples grow all over Santa Cruz County and are delicious, hardy and loved for endless reasons. On September 14th, during the standard Scotts Valley Market hours (9am-1pm) the market rolled out this free event with a flurry of activities for kids and adults alike. The Santa Cruz Public Libraries offered storytime and an apple scavenger hunt – participants learned foodie facts, talked to farmers and won a basket of berries. Mountain Feed and Farm Supply joined us for a DIY workshop making apple sauce from 10:30-11:30am. The apple art table and live music set the mood. Apple pressing and tasting and face painting were a hit.
