The idea behind the new collection of vendors was to create a more enticing market for local chefs, restaurants and foodies. Today’s market was full of citrus fruits, heirloom zucchini & broccoli, colorful radishes and beets, beautiful fresh herbs, stunning asparagus, baby lettuces, petite heads of cauliflower, squash blossoms, succulent carrots, and crisp green beans. We are thrilled to have the best of small-farmed California produce right outside our door every Friday! Compliment your market finds with our delicious cheeses, wines, olive oils, vinegars, charcuterie, bulk beans & spices.
