This morning I stopped by my local farmers market. I filled my bag to the brim with apples, butternut squash, carrots, lettuce, parsnips, and an onion, all for under $10. It was bittersweet though. Over the next few months, produce options will decrease as the temperature does the same. Farewell summer's bounty.
And yet, even now, the local fruits and vegetables I was able to choose from here in New York are limited compared to those in California. Last Saturday morning, I left Foodbuzz HQ to meet Melissa, Bobbi, Mara, and Diana at the Ferry Building. Although I enjoyed wandering through, the farmers market was my favorite part:
What I wouldn't do for options like that year-round! Though I suppose I'd have to move to Los Angeles for that :). Either way, I'm so glad I had the chance to gawk over the California-grown grapes, potatoes, greens, squash, heirloom beans, and peppers, and enjoy my first sweet slice of persimmon.
Afterwards, we walked over to the craft fair across the street, and then headed to the Metreon. More Foodbuzz Festival wining and dining ahead...
