Become a Friend of the Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Markets and help us continue to provide local residents a unique, weekly experience while keeping our operations sustainable.



In addition to providing a place to purchase fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, pasture-raised meats and tasty prepared foods, the markets also offer a thriving community gathering place. At the markets, families, friends and visitors can enjoy local music, good company and educational events which highlight the tremendous work being done by a slew of exceptional farms and food artisans in the region.

We operate on a minimal budget so every contribution matters from. As a Friend of the markets your donation will help us do the following:

  • Develop our Pop-Up Breakfast Series which combines exceptional food with education.
