Every Sunday, the Live Oak Farmers' Market becomes a bustling hub of community and freshness, open from 9 AM to 2 PM. This lively market is part of the Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Markets (SCCFM) network, which has been championing the health of its patrons and the local economy for over three decades.
Born from the aftermath of the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1990, the SCCFM has grown exponentially, proudly featuring a selection of certified organic produce that stands among California's largest. Now operating five Certified Farmers’ Markets throughout Santa Cruz County, SCCFM is a testament to resilience and community spirit.
Here, SCCFM offers you a taste of the region's finest: from organic fruits and vegetables to pasture-raised meats, and sustainably-sourced seafood to handcrafted goods. SCCFM is deeply committed to fostering direct relationships between local producers and consumers, advocating for ecological farming methods that respect the land and sea.
When you shop at the Live Oak Farmers' Market, you're doing more than just buying groceries; you're participating in a tradition that nurtures the community, bolsters the local economy, and sustains the robust farming heritage of Santa Cruz. Join us to savor the genuine flavors of the region while investing in a healthier, more sustainable future for all.
