California Dreaming…

A few farmer’s market pictures for you today from my time in California.



Do you have a year-round farmer’s market where you live? What is your favorite thing to get this time of year?

About Brie Aronson

Brie Aronson came to Polyface from southern California. During college, she was diagnosed with food allergies and had to begin asking about the source of every single thing she put in her mouth. This led to an interest in all things food and she sought out a way to learn how it can be produced ethically and sustainably. Her desire is to help people shift their focus from counting calories, being intimidated by their kitchens, and being disconnected from the land to one that experiences the life-giving enjoyment of food. Having completed the internship in summer 2010, she now assists with the buying clubs and sales building, leads school tours of the farm, and will be the summer 2012 farm cook.

    Looks glorious! About the only thing I can count on for sure at ours is eggs! But hey, thats’ something!

  2. One farm stand stays open year round, but all the markets have closed down by the end of October, and most of the farm stands as well. Two or three will stay open till Christmas and then take advantage of the holiday to close for a month, since they have virtually nothing of their own to sell – they and the farm stand that stays open year round eke out the year by bringing in produce from other places – one of them sells bananas – not a crop we grow anywhere in Canada, that’s for sure. By now the year round stand still has a few standbys of their own – apples, carrots, garlic, leeks, cabbage and squash for the most part – but everything else in their shop is coming in from somewhere else – broccoli, onions, potatoes, beets, turnips, kale, chard, green onions. They sell some other local farms products too – honey, herbs and nuts.

    I’m in Northern California and Chico has a wonderful year round farmer’s market. Right now we’re enjoying lots of citrus, the last of the apples, greens and root veggies. Parsnips are one thing in particular that I look forward to in January.

  4. The pictures are beautiful! Our markets go from the end of May to the end of October around here. I think Eastern Market in Detroit has stuff brought in even in winter, but they sell a lot of meat and other things (I don’t know if they have produce in the winter).

    Those strawberries look yummy! They remind me of picking rows and rows of them in the spring for our farmers market.
    Around here most markets go year round. We even produce and sell greens in the winter along with stored root veggies, alliums and squash.
