My husband and I make it a point to visit the weekly farmers’ market to get fresh produce and flowers. The first market we saw was in the Bay Area and I was absolutely enamoured by the whole setup. The market occupied a portion of a downtown street (closed to traffic of course) and had stalls along both sides. There were stalls selling fruits, vegetables, breads, eggs and even ready to eat foods. There was also a man playing live music to perk up ambiance.
From there, we moved to Orange County and found a market nearby. This one is on Sundays and is conveniently located in the same complex as my latest favourite store, Sprouts. Even though the market lacks a live music performance, the friendly folks and their quality goods make up for it completely. We even got some free stuff today, from two stalls. One vendor gave a few meyer lemons and another dropped a pink lady apple into our bag of gala apples. I leave the market looking forward to another Sunday of explorations and finds.
