“A passion to help the community. The ability to deliver.”


A Rich History

Old Town Goleta is the only remaining area of light industrial, commercial, retail, and residential. The residents and businesses are fiercely proud of its eclectic appearance. We resist the gentrification that others find appealing.

Many thanks to native son Tom Modugno Owner of Santa Cruz Market, for his thorough research. Tom, we love you for sharing your work with us!

Local Businesses and restaurants

Small businesses and local restaurants are the lifeblood of Old Town Goleta. Shop Local!

Local business and restaurant ownership means that important decisions are made by people who live in our community, are our friends and neighbors and have a personal vested interest in the long-term success of the community. Individuals, workers, and small business owners are more likely to move to or invest in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character.

Sustaining sponsor Santa Cruz Market

Santa Cruz Markets has been locally owned since 1980.

Before that, in the 1970s, Santa Cruz Markets was a chain of seven stores throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. The name comes from the first store in the chain that was on the corner of Santa Cruz Street and Main Street  in Ventura. The Santa Barbara stores were on North Milpas Street, Cliff Drive on the Mesa, and Hollister Avenue in Goleta. 

In 1980, the chain was broken up and the only two left today are in the Santa Barbara area.
