When I’m traveling, I love to visit farmer’s markets to see the local produce and experience the culture of the area. Before heading up to Carmel by The Sea, I checked online and learned that they do have a year-round farmer’s market that opens up every Thursday. Fortunately, Thursday was my last day in Carmel, so I was able to shop for fresh fruit and take it home with me. Food is the best kind of souvenir!
The market is small and takes up less than a full block, but they have a full assortment of just what I expect to find at a farmer’s market. There were berries, stone fruit, veggies, fresh bread, pastries, smoked fish, hummus, sauces, flowers and plants. A musician provided lovely background music while I shopped. My family and I enjoyed the peaches, nectarines and pluots that I brought home with me.
