Spring crops grown at the UCSC Farm & Alan Chadwick Garden.

The 2019 UCSC Farm & Garden Market Cart opens on Friday, June 7, marking another abundant season of fresh, delicious organic produce and beautiful flowers from the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Alan Chadwick Garden.

The Market Cart is located at the corner of Bay & High Streets at the base of the UC Santa Cruz campus, and will be open from 12 noon – 6 p.m. on Fridays. Cash, checks, and EBT are accepted (we cannot process credit cards).

Early season offerings include organically grown blueberries, strawberries, green garlic, lemons, lettuce, arugula, salad mix, spinach, and swiss chard. Flower bouquets will also be available, along with packaged quinoa grown on the UCSC Farm.

As the season progresses, shoppers can look forward to heirloom and dry-farmed tomatoes, sweet corn, broccoli, potatoes, sweet and hot peppers, apples, pears, basil, winter squash, and much more.

All the produce is organically grown by staff and students of the Apprenticeship in Ecological Horticulture, a farmer and gardener training program of UCSC’s Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS).

The Market Cart will be open through late October (weather permitting).
