The Kickoff for Season 5 of Pescadero Grown is Upon Us!

That’s right people- this Thursday, June 4th at 3 PM is when the celebration begins. This year is our 5th anniversary of our small, but very community based farmers’ market! We couldn’t be anymore excited about sharing another season with this community. We have a lot in store this year including raffles, open mics, karaoke, language exchanges, and of course delicious food!!

Not only is the food delicious, but it is also as fresh as you can get. With our market being in the late afternoon/early evening you can bet that a majority of the produce was picked that very morning. And not only is the food delicious and fresh, but you can also add in hyper-local!! Most of the vendor’s farms and ranches are within a few miles of our market and none are farther than 20 miles.

Who will be at our market you ask? Well I’m happy to announce we have solid veterans returning and pumped up about the season. In the lineup we have Blue House Farm ran by Ryan Casey, Fly Girl Farm brought to you by Airielle Love and McCall Marshall, and Farmageddon with Chuck and Christine Harper. Also joining us is Markegard Family Grass-Fed who will be bringing the beef, pork, and lamb and Todd Parsons with State Street Honey and all his sweetness.

RAFFLE RAFFLE RAFFLE!

To add to the celebrations we decided to have a raffle- and this time we’re not just raffling off kitchen supplies and legos- we went big this year and will be giving away a Nexus tablet!- worth $250!! The winning ticket will be drawn at 6:45- don’t miss out on the excitement!

SPECIAL GUESTS!

The HMB Library  will be attending the market to corral and entertain the kiddos (big or small). Also joining in on the fun is POST, Peninsula Open Space Trust, who is Pescadero Grown’s official market sponsor this year. Thank you POST for helping make all this magic happen! Then last, but definitely not least, is Kevy Nova and his electric guitar who will be providing the tunes for the market. Hula hoop contests should be expected- this gives you time to practice before Thursday.

So to wrap up- fresh, delicious food, children activities, a raffle, and rockin music. Don’t miss out- see you this Thursday at 3!!.
