As a huge fan of going to different Farmer’s Markets, I was so excited to get the chance to finally go to the one here in Mission Viejo. There’s just something so enjoyable about walking around picking out your own fresh produce knowing that you’re helping a local farmer and not the billion dollar industries packed with pesticides and chemicals (and etc) that you’d get buying the bulk of your produce from your basic grocery chain.
Now OF COURSE I will forever shop at Trader Joes and Ralph’s. But for the smaller things, there’s literally no better feeling than shopping a Farmer’s Market. Plus, for whatever reason, grocery shopping outdoors on a Sunday takes that whole “chore” feeling out of grocery shopping. At least it does for me anyway; lol.
My favorite booth at the market this weekend was a huge fruit and nut set up where you could literally taste every. single. thing. before buying. And let me tell you; it literally turned into a bit of a breakfast buffet for us.
Has anyone out there ever tried a page tangerine?? We bought an entire bag full, I’d never had one before but they are SO good!
Hope everyone has a great Sunday and a Merry pre-Christmas week this week!
