La Jolla Farmers’ Market

Something I try to do in each new place I visit is attend a farmers’ market.

Farmers’ markets can give us a good taste of the culture in that city or neighborhood.

From a larger standpoint, what is in season in that area? Which fruits and vegetables are ready to be harvested at this time of the year?

And in a more local standpoint, what are the people like around here? What do they shop for? What is important to them?

I met some pretty interesting people at the La Jolla market yesterday.

And found out about some restaurants in the area that I need to try asap!

I also tasted some excellent food.

The coolest thing to me is that the farmers’ market community is slowly expanding.

Between the number of people that attend…

And the sheer number of markets’ in any given area…

It proves that people are becoming more and more conscious about the food they purchase and the lifestyle they are supporting.

It’s these small but growing communities that are going to make a big change in our future.

These small communities that think sustaining our environment is of utmost importance…

And these people who appreciate fresh, delicious food…

And trying new varieties of things they already love, like these mushrooms…

It’s the simple things that count.

There are countless benefits to attending your local farmers’ market. Meeting new people, talking to the farmers who actually grow your produce, tasting new foods, and supporting the local food movement.

San Diego is lucky to have year round markets- and I can’t wait to go explore them all…

And share my experiences with you, of course! 🙂
