I have lived in this area for over two years now and one of the things I miss the most about the San Fransisco and North Bay area is the local farmer’s markets, where I would usually pick up my weekly produce.
The market was small, though I was told that was because it is still early and that once there is more fresh produce ready to sell, more vendors will come. There were two vegetable vendors, with squash, eggplant, asparagus, peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes. The tomatoes didn’t seem quite ready and a couple of other vendors assured me that in two to three weeks I will be able to get ripe, juicy red tomatoes at the market. The only fruit I saw was watermelon and blueberries but soon, they said, there will be more.
In addition to fruits and vegetables, there were booths set up with herbed olive oils, fresh breads, local honey, raw milk and cheese products, fresh baked goods, homemade preserves, even farm fresh organic eggs. A couple of booths for other items like handmade jewelry and soaps were also displaying their work to sell.
I plan to return next week and spend more time and will check out the market in St. Andrews next.
