Farmer's markets are one of my favorite things. Who isn't a sucker for a powwow around fresh, organic, locally-grown fruits and veggies? I'm not clear if locavorism is the way to go or not in terms of its environmental benefits, but I love being able to chat with the amiable farmers, who are ever willing to answer questions, boast about their produce, and offer endless samples. I used to frequent this farmer's market on the Westside, but since moving, there hasn't been a legit one. Until now. So glad this weekly farmer's market is but a short jaunt away. I'm also loving the seasonal fruit that is making an appearance in the stands; though pluots are rather tasty, I couldn't resist the gigantic, flavor-bursting peaches and nectarines. I think I'm still in summer mode, even if the weather is supposedly changing to cooler variations.


  1. I am so a sucker for fruits and veggies! But I tend to forget about them and they start to rot. Nectarines are my absolute favourite, we planted a tree in our backyard the other day!

    And these fruits are really summery aren't they? Funny, seeing as you are transitioning into Autumn

  2. I love these photos! They make me so excited for Saturdays. I love markets. They encourage the most wonderful sense of community and appreciation of naturally grown food.

  3. Love the farmer's market. So perfect!!!

  5. I love going to farmer's markets. The freshness of the market is so amazing that it makes going to the grocery store less appealing. Great photos...I could eat those berries straight from your photo!

  14. I love the farmers market. We can't go now because of Benjamin, it's cold in the mornings.. but enjoy it before it gets cold over there.. if it does?

  15. Gorgeous! We've lived in the Bay Area for over a year now and I still haven't made it in to the Farmer's Market in the city. We did go to the one in our little town once, but it was slightly disappointing. Maybe we'll make it our weekend goal to head into the city and snag some produce pow-wow time :)

  16. You and Alex should really move to LA since both of you are out here SO much! ;)


Thank you kindly for taking time to comment. We truly appreciate each and every one!
