Farms & Markets

Although Watsonville is known for its abundance of strawberries and a long history of apple production, a wealth of locally grown fruits and vegetables are stars of the show at farmer's markets throughout Santa Cruz County. These veritable boutiques of nature can be found throughout the area, and often host special cooking and gardening-related events. In fact, there is a farmer's market in Santa Cruz County for nearly every day of the week, featuring fresh seafood, goat cheese, organically-grown fruits and vegetables, locally-grown lavender, cut flowers and other items. Check out the interactive Country Crossroads Map for a fresh adventure in locally grown food for purchase. Read more...
