Farmers Market Fun
We always feel so lucky to live in Southern California – sunshine and fresh produce all year long – but summer… ah summer, when a plethora of farm fresh goodies are in season including one of our favorites: cherries!
At the height of the cherry season you can find perfect Bings and Rainiers at Ralphs & Pink Berry, but if you have the time, getting them at your local farmers market feels like a special treat. We are lucky to have a network of farmers markets throughout the city. Using the Certified Farmers Market website http://www.farmernet.com/events/cfms is a quick way to find one close to your house. An added bonus: the markets registered with the CFM are guaranteed to be farmers selling directly to the public.
Cherries are one of our favorites but there are so many wonderful farmers market treasures. The sweet smell of strawberries draws you to the stalls where at the height of the season the mounds of bright red berries make taking home a three pack irresistible. And when the baby artichokes make their way down the 5 to your table even an amateur cook can feel like a culinary mastermind. The Southland Farmers Association has a great list of what’s in season http://www.sfma.net/consumer/inseason.shtml so you don’t have to miss any of your favorites.
Most of the farmers markets are on Sunday, but there are a few on alternate days. Silverlake has a Saturday market, the Plummer Park market is on Monday morning, you can visit a Venice market on Friday morning and the Culver City markets is Tuesday afternoon till 7:00 so you can get some shopping in at the end of the day.
Whichever market you pick – enjoy!
