Every Wednesday and Saturday, Santa Monica hosts a farmers market on Arizona Avenue. For the past two days I've been hold up inside, buried in my computer on a project for work. So today it was a MUST that I get out of the house. I got SB to go with me for a walk down to the market. I love doing this on a weekly basis, if I can make it happen. I use to work next door to this and went every Wednesday, sometimes for breakfast and dinner. It's a feast for the eyes, spurs on the creativity for what to make or photograph. Plus you get to sample all the produce.
Usually I walk down here myself and listen to a podcast, like KCRW Good Food, which always gives a break down of whats in season and a little extra from Jonathan Gold, LA Times food writer. Recipes are usually included. Here are a few gems from my iPhone on what we saw and bought today. Enjoy!
