The Scotts Valley Farmers’ Market – Closed for 2023 Season

The Scotts Valley Farmers’ Market hosted its last day on November 18th – the second year at the Joe and Linda Alberti Clubhouse/SV Boys and Girls Club. Here we ate, shopped, mingled, sat in the shade and the sun and enjoyed all that is seasonal, grown regionally and a pleasure for the senses. Thank you for visiting and a huge thanks to all the regulars who support this market and the farms and other vendors that do the hard work of growing food and showing up.

Established in 2009 with the City of Scotts Valley, this market has become a seasonal treasure to the local community and to those visiting the area looking for a place to slow down and unwind. Here, every Saturday 9am-1pm, from late spring through the fall, a circle of regional farms, local food businesses and other makers set up their stands to offer shoppers and diners an array of delicious edibles. The market is a resource for nutritious food and agricultural education, providing a gathering place for families, friends and neighbors. Whether your a weekly shopper or just passing through, find what you’re looking for amidst the robust selection of organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, pasture-raised chicken and duck eggs, flowers, artisanal meats, breads, seafood, pastries, espresso bar and ready-to-eat cuisine.
