California = Farmer’s Market Fun

October 29, 2010 at 1:25 pm 7 comments

The San Luis Obispo farmer’s market is a fabulous, bustling mecca of food and deliciousness. The trees downtown are HUGE and beautiful and it was so fun to peruse the goods.

Heirloom tomato heaven. Can you just taste how sweet they are!!? Amazing.

Dry farmed watermelons. Have I told you lately how much I love watermelon? Probably not. Love love love.

Reunited with my sweet pineapple guava. Oh how I love them. Remember when I tried them last year? Well, I’ve been dreaming of them ever since. And they are in season again while we’re here. I like to spend Thursday nights eating myself into a guava induced blissful state. Ahhhhhh…

What kind of yummy have you found at your local farmer’s market lately?

    Man I want to try one of those pineapple guavas! I can only imagine how delicious they would be! And that farmers market looks like one found only in dreams! Ones where I live are much smaller and not nearly as sought after!

    Tomatoes! I’m also just a sucker for tomatoes. We’ve had some great apples recently, but I don’t really love apples. Haha. 🙂

    We LOVE this farmers market! So fun to go just for the food and entertainment value 🙂
    And that place that sells watermelons has a fruit/veggie stand just down the street from us.
    It’s funny, I didn’t appreciate all our fresh fruits and veggies until I went out of state and realized not everyone has that luxury. Now I need to try those pineapple guavas!

    I love all of your inspiring food ideas. I am doing an exercise and smoothie challenge myself, as this holiday season is kicking my eating already! I had never made a green smoothie before I “met” you last year, your video really helped. I plan to refer to your site in the next couple of days so others can see how you make such good smoothies, and the equipment you use.

    Thanks again! And I look forward to your green smoothie challenge as well!

    our farmer’s market is done for the season! there is one more holiday market in november, but after that, we’re market-less until april :[

    last time i went to our grocery store though, they had heirloom tomatoes in the “local” section! it was my first time trying them, sooo delicious! they were awesome colors too.

    i never got this sort of food crazy when i lived in GA; the west coast is good for this stuff.

    I JUST found out that pineapple guavas are also called feijoas. OMGoodness I love feijoas! I had them in New Zealand, and they are so good. (I eat them by cutting them in half and scooping them out with a spoon)
    yumm yumm…
    anyhow thought I should share.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
