santa monica farmers' market

besides going down to union square, our neighborhood market currently consists of apples, onions, potatoes, and a whole lot of baked goods to make up for the fact that it's still winter in the fruits and veggies department. obviously this isn't a problem on the west coast. california's fresh strawberries tasted like the entire month of july (i ate a whole box) and oh my gosh the citrus. the citrus! lemon this and blood orange that and a citrus muffin topped with orange marmalade for the plane ride home. please and thank you.

there are only so many strawberries and tangerines one can consume in a four day time span and i have little self control at a farmers' market.

i'm still working on my bag of tangerines that were carefully stuffed inside ed's sneakers for the flight home. i also realize that whole foods in nyc likely sells those same tangerines shipped from california.

These pictures are making my mouth water for Spring/Summer! I can't wait until the color comes back to the farmer's markets :)

Whole Foods is magical. Super expensive, but magical.

Whole foods may...But I bet theirs weren't shipped in shoes! ;)

Oh fruit! You've reminded me how desperately hungry I am for lunch–off to find something as gorgeous and fresh as all this fruit, I hope!

I would relocate out there purely for the year-round access to produce and flowers. Ugh, your photos make me crave a trip!

God bless California! I'm happy you got to experience all the fruit bliss. It's treat for even those who grew up there. I live in Brazil now and recently bought some California strawberries for a birthday party, and even after traveling all that way they still tasted like a little bit of home. :) And everyone here kept saying, "Wow, those are HUGE!" haha!

I love visiting farmer's markets on vacation. It's so fun to see what is selling in a different area... but it also makes me sad that I can't buy everything! California really does have it made when it comes to local, beautiful produce!

I've been to this market - it's a great little one! It's truly difficult not to purchase every type of fruit available!
