Farmers Markets

California is known to be a sunny, sustainable state with a variety of people: celebrities, hippies, fishers, farmers, builders, skiers, etc. That variety also comes with a plethora of vegetables, fruits, grains, fish, meat, you name it! We Californians have been very spoiled in living in such a diverse and amazing area and I could not imagine living somewhere that I did not have such options.

Which brings me to one of my favorite new discoveries: Farmers Markets! I have known about them for quite some time, attending my first one in 2006 on a warm Thursday night in San Luis Obispo. But ever since moving back up to the Bay Area I have been attempting to attend the one half a mile away every Sunday morning. Friends and I have tried to meet up, getting breakfast after purchasing delicious fruits and vegetables!

What I really love about having so much produce to choose from is that buying new varities of things allows me to search and try new recipes that I may never have if I was just doing my regular shopping at Safeway.

I strongly suggest that everyone try to get out to the local Farmers Markets (check out for ones in the Bay Area). It’s not only a great way to spend a sunny day, but you’re also helping the environment by reducing gas in transportation, and helping local farmers!
