Pepperfest at the Westside Farmers' Market

UCSC Farm & Garden Program - Santa Cruz, California

Pepper season is HERE! Come down to the Westside market at the corner of Mission St and Western Drive on October 6 for our first ever pepper extravaganza.

Co-hosted by Everett Family Farm, the Friends of the UCSC Farm and Garden, and The Santa Cruz Farmers Market Association, PepperFest will dazzle, amaze, and put some spice in your Saturday. Join pepper enthusiast and horticultural master Orin Martin, Manager of the Alan Chadwick Garden at UCSC, and the farmers at Everett Family Farm to hear growing and cooking tips, and see a pepper roasting and smoking demonstration. Both sweet and hot pepper varieties will also be for sale at the Everett Farm booth, as well as at other farms' booths at market.

The Westside Farmers Market runs from 9-12. Gather at 11 am sharp for Orin's discussion on the amazing variety of peppers you can enjoy this season. Q&A to follow. Questions? Email
