It’s Saturday morning, you slept in a couple hours, it’s about 10am and you are ready to get out of the house to enjoy that nice Santa Cruz weekend fresh air. You are thinking of an ideal place to go that can has a mix of fresh food, friends/community, being outside, and music. You, my friend, are wanting to go to the Aptos Farmer’s Market.
Every Saturday from 8am-12pm, rain or shine, farmers, vendors, musicians and community members head over to the main parking lots at Cabrillo College for a great morning of fresh food, conversations, laughs, and entertainment. The farmers market is always full of color. The array of fruits, vegetables, breads, dairy products, and meats make for great local shopping. Many of the vendors are certified Organic and offer a wide variety of in-season fruits and veggies.
If you are a parent don’t let that stop you from enjoying the market festivities. Feel free to bring them! Kids can enjoy the variety of free produce samples to munch on, live music to keep them entertained, extra kid friendly instruments for them to join in, and sometimes there are street performers such as the Great Morgani or a friendly clown making balloon animals. There is always something to smile about at the Aptos Farmers market for both adults and kids!
The Aptos Farmers Market is the perfect way to kick off your weekend.
See you on Saturday!
