Jewelz What are we doing today?


Santa Monica Farmers’ Market

I don't cook. It's not that I can't or that I suck at it, I just don't. I can make a killer spam and eggs with rice, but then again, I'm sure everyone else can too. Cooking for one is especially challenging. Do you REALLY want to eat the same thing over and over again? As a result, I've had very little incentive to ever go to a farmer's market. Yeah, sure, there's lots of tasty things to enjoy at a farmers' market, but really, it's the produce that everyone goes for. Or is it?

Who knew you could find BBQ chicken and ribs at the farmers' market? The ribs were damn good too. This just confirms that I have to get my ass to the Atwater Farmers' Market to enjoy Big Mista's BBQ. That's for another discussion though.

Santa Monica Farmers' Market is also where you can find Carlsbad Aquafarm's tent, where you can buy oysters to take home or even better, fresh shucked for your enjoyment right there.

So yes, there are lots of goodies to eat. More importantly though, there are just a lot of rich and colorful things to take pictures of. For a n00b photog/blog/foodie, this was awesome. Will I eat any of these things? Who knows? But it sure is nice to look at!

So there you have it. One of my very first journeys to a farmers' market. I'll definitely be going back for more.
