OH my goodness, it all looks so delicious. I am so jealous that you have access to such gorgeous produce at this time of year. Come on spring and summer!!

Happy Saturday!

Gorgeous photos. But looking at pictures like that makes me feel like people in the northern parts of this country have a really low quality of life for much of the year! :-( Everything’s dead, brown, grey, and snow-covered here. I want to move to CA!

My thoughts exactly!….what’s a Farmer’s Market…? ;)

cathyb.@brightbakes February 26, 2011 at 7:53 am

Jenna, those pictures are equal parts delight and torture.
Delight because I’m a girl who plays in the dirt and grows lotsa veggies…and torture because I happen to live in Northern Wisconsin…which means I just walked through 3 foot of snow to get to my mailbox. Yeah. Really.

Cathy summed up my feelings perfectly, I experienced delight and torture while scrolling through your gorgeous photos! As I look out the window and see a couple feet of snow (a little less here in Southern Wisconsin), it seems like our farmers’ market is a long way off :(

Hey! “California Dreamin’ ” is the name of my personal 4-year-old blog! Good choice. Your photos have me interested in visiting the farmer’s market in my neighborhood tomorrow – the best in San Diego (the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market for anyone familiar)!

Your photos are great! It makes me happy to know that I’m not the only one who appreciates the beauty of farmer’s markets. They are especially sacred to me, living in the north where the growing season is only a few short months!

YUM. All that fresh produce looks soooo good… too bad it’s 5 degrees here in Minneapolis, we’ve got a ways to go before our farmers markets look that colorful :)

I feel so blessed to live in CA (San Diego) and have an abundance of local, fresh produce year round….and also blooming flowers, plants, green trees. Growing up in MN makes me appreciate the Land of Abundance even more!

These pics are glorious Jenna. Way to rock your camera skills :)

Ohhh how I wish I lived somewhere warm. It doesn’t even have to be THAT warm, just warm enough to go to the farmer’s market year round. Minnesota doesn’t provide that luxury, but when summer comes, it makes it all the more wonderful. Thanks for giving me my farmer’s market fix for the month. :)

Laura Jayne February 28, 2011 at 4:58 am

Jenna – what beautiful pictures! And what beautiful produce – I’m so jealous that your farmer’s market is open. It will be the end of June before ours is open here. Thanks for the incentive to hold on a little longer, spring is just around the corner.

aren’t CA farmers markets the best? my favorite one is at the Ferry Building. especially on saturdays when the roli roti truck has their porchetta sandwich. it’s so good i kinda want to hug it! have you been to the one in Monterey? it’s enormous! something like four blocks long!
