the watermelon from capay farm, they are just right for their sweetness and juiciness, not over ripen, very satisfied in the summer days. I used to get from happy boys farm, they are good as well, but many time they are a little over ripen. the ones from capay has the good size, small, and you can finish in two days.
I have not seen it for a couple of weeks in farmer’s market, maybe season is over already.
The Hungarian peppers were at Alemany farmers market. I wish I knew the name of the farm. They were at the south entrance to the left (if you’re entering at the south). Not the first vendor with the potatoes, peppers, onions etc. but the vendor on the left just before the cement structures start.
My local market is downtown Oakland aka Old Oakland on Fridays. Last week I discovered red delicious apples at the apple stand closest to Desco, Rainbow Orchards. Crisp juicy red delicious are hard to find, so I was happy to return this week to buy more. I know they’ve really fallen out of favor especially with so many apple varieties that are more exotic, but if you want to revisit the red delicious, Rainbow’s is a great example.
My favorite apple returns finally, the golden delicious from prevedelli farm, they are so crunchy, juicy and sweet, but not overly sweet, the sweetness is like light raw can suger sweet. Avaliable until Jan. I have seen them in both Sunnyvale and Palo Alto farmer’s market.
They go very well with balsamic vinegar, if you slide them as salad.
Hamada’s pomelo this past Friday went up in price to $2 each or $5 for 2. First one I tried was really sour! My one year old loved the ones from previous weeks but this week she is making sour faces. Are we past peak season already or is demand so high that they are picking underripe?
