Check out the new video highlighting The Point Market from EatUp Silicon Valley. This video made us super hungry 🌯.
On this episode of EatUp Silicon Valley, Sam and Serg are back in Santa Cruz, Pleasure Point to be exact. Pleasure Point lives and breathes surfing, which can build up an appetite! That’s what brought us to The Point Market, a popular market for visitors and locals. Owner, Hassan, has over 18 burritos but our eyes are set on the most popular item, the Cali Barrel Burrito! A massive burrito filled with eggs, bacon, avocado, cheese, and of course, grilled potatoes! Many say this is the best breakfast burrito in town so we had to try it!
Not in the mood for a Burrito? The Point Market has plenty of options including their fiery Tiger Prawns smothered in a citrusy spicy red sauce. Also, you can get more California than fish tacos, their rockfish taco is definitely on point! Once you’re done feasting, make sure you wash it all down with a refreshing smoothie. Remember, this place is a market so you can grab your favorite Santa Cruz sticker, Craft Beer, tub of Marianne’s Ice Cream or one of their 50+ hot sauces!
They also opened a nearby sister store called Black Point Market with similar products and delicious sandwiches! Follow Point Market on Instagram @thepointmarket for updates on what’s cooking in Pleasure Point!

More on The Point Market from The GoodTimes
What doesn’t the Point Market have, I ask myself, scanning the shelves and other surfaces brimming with goods. My field of vision is filled with everything from sunscreen, toiletries and Sex Wax to Marianne’s ice cream, bottles of local wine and countless snacks. There’s also all of the candy I loved as a kid, the kombuchas and jun tonics I love as an adult and—no joke—at least 50 varieties of hot sauce. There’s an espresso machine and gluten-free cookies and—well, you get the picture.
But I’m here at this charming little market on East Cliff Drive, in the heart of the Pleasure Point neighborhood, for the burritos. Specifically, the Cali burrito, which I can never resist despite a long list of other burrito options sharing menu space with breakfast, tacos, burgers, sandwiches, poutine, quesadillas and smoothies—all extremely tempting.
But wrapped within the Cali burrito’s warm tortilla are zesty seasoned french fries, carne asada, beans, rice, creamy avocado, sour cream and melty cheese. It’s everything my California heart wants in a burrito, our unofficial state food. The friendly cashier behind the counter rattles off a list of salsa options that blur together, but gives me an insider’s tip: “You gotta get the spicy green.” I do, and I do not regret it.
