Santa Fe Market Report

My favorite podcast, Good Food, comes out of the public radio station KCRW in Santa Monica, California.  Over the years I have discovered where to find tiny, tasty, caramel pies in Beverly Hills; have followed the host Evan as she baked a pie a day, one summer; and have even learned how to stuff a pumpkin with “everything delicious”.

But, the best part of the show, especially when the snow is flying in Santa Fe, is the market report.   Each week the manager of the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market  (held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings) walks through the tables loaded with produce, talks to the farmers, and describes in detail what’s available.

Santa Fe also has a year round farmers’ market and, once again, it has moved outside for the late spring, summer, and early fall seasons (held on Tuesday and Saturday mornings).  I made my first trip last week and came home with Swiss chard, spring onions, cilantro, arugula, and radishes.   When I checked to see what was in season at the Santa Monica market, I found  apricots, peaches, nectarines, berries, and lots of summer herbs.

So . . . I’m curious.  Have you been to your local farmers’ market yet and, if so, what did you bring home?

  1. Pineapples are back in season and mangoes – yum! Avocados are also starting to show up again. We didn’t realize that these were seasonal items when we moved to the tropics. Makes you appreciate them when they are in season!! Enjoy your fresh veggies and fruits!

  2. I wish I could see the Santa Fe farmers’ market. I manage the market here in Emporia. Unfortunately, it means I don’t get to do much sightseeing at other markets, but maybe in the winter I could take a little trip!
