Share your farmer's market, CSA, CSF finds

Here in So Cal we are blessed with year round markets. Here are some of today’s haul.
Arugula, romaine, mixed greens, carrots, cucumber, zucchini, scallions, tomatoes, kabocha squash, buffalo milk cheese, cilantro, jicama, almonds, persimmons, and oranges.
Meat: grass fed ground beef, a beef shank for osso bucco, and spicy Italian sausages made with lamb. A dozen eggs.
Treats: baguette, croissant, cinnamon bun, almond brioche, and rhubarb pie. Most of this goes straight to the freezer.


Wow! You are one lucky camper!!

Which one is your market?

We are in So Cal…our Saturday market is in Calabasas.

Here in so cal, the market is finally showing signs of fall. Lots of persimmons, pomegranates, and brussel sprouts. We also got fresh walnuts, two cows milk cheeses, grapes, winter lettuce mix, and Yukon gold potatoes.

Pictured- sourdough bread, brussel sprouts, asparagus, citrus, seedless grapes, and tomatoes.
Not pictured - cinnamon roll for DH, cheese, eggs, and lettuces.

It’s Spring in California and the FM is packed with good stuff. Tomatoes, fennel, celery, baby potatoes, onions, lettuce, spinach, and eggs. We also got a few treats.

Tomatoes already in for SoCal? and they aren’t from the hot house?

Already in and pretty sweet. It’s been really warm since late January. The cherry tomatoes are not hothouse. Some of the large tomatoes are still hothouse.

Will you eat all of that produce in a week???

Not likely. The carrots, celery, potatoes, and onions will last at least two weeks. I try to finish the tomatoes, spinach and fennel bulb within a few days. If we don’t get to all the tomatoes I will blitz them and make sauce for the freezer.
