A Scripps Ranch tradition returns this year – Santa and Mrs. Claus will be making their 16th annual visit to the Scripps Ranch Farmers Market. Stop by 10380 Spring Canyon Rd. on Saturday, Dec. 23 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for photo opportunities, treats, activities for the kids, and a free winter penguin treasure hunt. Then, sit back at any of the 15 bistro tables to enjoy the live holiday music.

The market is open from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Saturday. It’s run by longtime Scripps Ranch residents Bev and Mike Cassity, who strive to create a welcoming, family-friendly community destination every weekend. This is the market’s 16th year in Scripps Ranch. Learn more at www.srfm.org or www.facebook.com/scrippsranchfarmersmarket.
