Santa Cruz County’s farmer’s markets are the inspiration for the farm-to-table scene at popular restaurants throughout the county. Opt for a sidewalk café or bistro, casual eatery at the beach or on the wharf, or elegant setting for a romantic dinner. Taste artisan ice cream, made from locally-sourced ingredients at a sweet spot surrounded by boutiques and shops. Drop in at a local coffee shop and hang with the locals as you sip a cup of flavorful, artisan-roasted brew. Stop by a lively brewery and sample craft beer, or spend a leisurely afternoon at a wine tasting room with a vineyard view in a rural setting. Or satisfy your sweet tooth at a beloved local bakery, where everything is made from scratch.
