One of the great things about living in California is the abundance of farmers’ markets. There’s almost one per day within a 5 mile radius of my house. Even if I don’t buy anything, they’re great for seeing what’s in season. My only “problem” with farmers’ markets is that produce can be expensive and sometimes I go overboard and buy too much. What I’ve been doing recently is to limit the amount I spend, say $10-15, and put the cash in my pocket. When that cash is gone, I cut myself off.

It’s summer so it seems like everything is in season: peppers, squash, tomatoes, berries, stone fruits (nectarines, peaches, but no apricots this year!), as well as the year-round vegetables like carrots, mushrooms, herbs, onions, and potatoes. Here are some of the photos from today. Enjoy!
