Kathrine Stern was the head chef at La Posta, a small beloved Italian restaurant in the Seabright neighborhood, for close to a decade. She is currently exploring options for her next culinary adventure. In the meantime we are so pleased to have her back for another round. A dedicated shopper at the Downtown Santa Cruz Farmers’ Market every Wednesday, for both her personal and professional life, Katherine has a keen eye for whatever new gems have just come into season, be it kumquats or Blenheim apricots. Years ago on a backpacking trip in Europe she fell in love with Italy and extended her stay to learn more about agriculture and cooking. Between picking grapes and spending time in kitchens her love for the culinary arts was cemented. Learn about Chef Stern and join us for this special meal.

Each ticket will be entered into a raffle for a $50 farmers’ market gift certificate. The economy for the small farm has always been challenging. 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.
