Grocery shopping for green goodness in the sunshine, by the beach, as lovely people hand you samples of deliciousness from all sides? It doesn’t get much better than that! Except, it actually does. When you shop at a farmers’ market, you are able to get the freshest organic fruits & veggies from local sources while supporting a sustainable way of life. Why get tangerines and apples that have been grown 8 states over and shipped thousands of miles when you can hit up a Farmers Market to get some that were grown practically in your own backyard?
Yesterday, I got a chance to check out the PB Farmers’ Market and I was impressed with the quality of the goods. This market takes place between Garnet & Bayard St. every Tuesday from 2 to 6:30pm, rain or shine. If your looking for a local spot to get some eats, check out the sustainable selection at this market.
Highlights from the Pacific Beach Farmers’ Market:
Fresh Baby Carrots, Grown in Oceanside
Selection of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Bunch of Radishes
Strawberries, Grown in Fallbrook
Selection of Sprouts from Suzie’s Farm
Cute Little Cacti
There was so much good stuff that it was a bit hard to narrow down exactly what I wanted to take home with me! However (after much browsing) I was finally able to figure out what will end up on my table. Here are my finals food picks:
Tangerines Baby Broccoli Baby Carrots
Strawberries Country French Bread Spinach
Muffin & Macaroons Brownie Bites Orange Scone & Croissants
While I was at the PB Farmers’ Market, I was able to pick up a new copy of Edible San Diego (a unique & incredible magazine highlighting San Diego farmers and restaurants using locally grown produce). If you want to learn more about local & sustainable food, I highly recommend Edible San Diego as a source! Click here to visit them online.
