We are so happy to welcome Kenny Woods into the chef circuit of the 2019 Pop-Up Breakfast Series. Kenny is the executive chef of 1440 Multiversity, a newly established center for learning, exploration and wellness in Scotts Valley. He and and the kitchen team approached the farmers’ markets with the goal of sourcing direct from farms.
Chef Woods values regional, organic produce and uses the farmers’ markets as a central hub to purchase from small, responsible growers. He and the Markets are developing a system of sourcing and delivery that may be a model for other businesses in our area with a large employee base and/or host a kitchen within their facilities. This is an exciting new partnership and we have no doubt Kenny will offer up a unique and delicious meal at the June 29th breakfast.
THE MENU TBA

With labor issues, growing competition and extreme weather, farmers are increasingly vulnerable. More than ever we at SCCFM are working to keep operation costs as low as possible for the grower, minimizing the financial burden they bare. In response, we are exploring new and exciting avenues to diversify our base of support. This includes turning to our community, and fans of regional agriculture, to sustain and grow our educational programs and the markets at large.
