The Santa Cruz farmers markets are the social event of the week. Everyone is there- friends, neighbors, butchers, bakers and I'm sure some one there must moonlight as a candlestick maker.
Each market has its own vibe. Wednesday downtown is packed to the gills with produce tents, drum beating bohemians, and a bike valet. Saturday morning on the West side is a bit more low key. People stroll by for breakfast, to watch a fiddling band of print makers, and to buy flowers.
This spring, the Ranunculus have been going crazy!
