It’s great to support farmers and small businesses at farmer’s markets. Fortunately, here in California, I can get fresh, local produce from the many year round markets.
The SoCo market is open every Saturday. There is plenty of parking to make it easy to shop.
This time of year is great for California fruits and veggies. I found the end of Summer crops (white peaches!), hard to find fruit (figs) and the beginnings of Fall produce (persimmons, pomegranates). There was plenty to choose from.
In addition to the California grown produce, this market has quite a few booths with food products from local small businesses – bread, baked goods, jam, hummus, yogurt and more. There are also plants and a knife sharpener.
The market is small, but has an excellent variety. The atmosphere was nice and everyone I met was friendly.
