Fresh from the Farmers’ Market

There are many things to love about Santa Monica, but the one that I am reminded about twice a week is our wonderful farmers’ market located at Arizona Avenue and 2nd Street!  I can’t think of any other place in Los Angeles, the country, or even in the world, where such fresh, locally grown produce is available to all takers twelve months out of twelve.

In this respect we are truly blessed by our climate. I am also proud that our now very famous downtown farmers’ market is actually owned and operated by the City, which makes it feel even more a part of the community.  The Wednesday morning market is very different from the Saturday market.  On the weekday there is a very perceivable bustle of local chefs buzzing from stall to stall, seeing what’s inspiring and what will end up on this week’s menu. The Saturday market is more leisurely; folks stop to chat with each other as well as with the various vendors, some of whom have become friends over the years.

So twice a week, I start my early morning doing something I love about Santa Monica: experiencing the downtown farmers’ market.
