Farm and Garden Market Cart

The Market Cart sells fresh produce from the UCSC Farm and Garden

Organic vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers are sold twice weekly at the UCSC Farm & Garden's Market Cart, starting in early June and continuing through late October. The Market Cart is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 12 pm to 6 pm at the base of the UC Santa Cruz campus (corner of Bay and High Streets).

Early-season offerings include strawberries, blueberries, and an array of tender lettuces and other greens. As the growing season progresses, shoppers can look forward to sweet corn, dry-farmed tomatoes, plums, potatoes, an array of sweet and hot peppers, apples, basil, and much more. Flower bouquets are also available weekly.

The cart will be open into late October or early November, depending on the length of the growing season. For more information, call (831) 459-3240 or email casfs@ucsc.edu. To check the exact opening date for 2014, see the Calendar of Events. All proceeds benefit the Apprenticeship training program in organic farming and gardening.
