Farm's market cart offers organic produce
Fresh organic produce and flowers will be available at the
base of campus twice a week beginning Tuesday, June 20.
The Farm & Garden's Market Cart will be open Tuesdays and
Fridays, noon to 6 p.m., at the corner of Bay and High Streets.
Early offerings will include tender lettuces, sweet carrots,
tasty beets, and chard. As the growing season progresses, look
forward to sweet corn, flavorful tomatoes, plums, potatoes,
an array of sweet and hot peppers, apples, basil, and more.
While you're picking up vegies for dinner, grab a colorful
bouquet of flowers for your home or workplace.
The cart will be open into the fall, depending on the length
of the growing season. All proceeds benefit the UCSC Center
for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems' apprenticeship
program in ecological horticulture. For more information, call
