Do You Go to Farmers Markets?

One of the neat things about living here is the benefits of going to Farmers Markets...year round. There are lots of them in the San Diego area.

They are such a treat back East, because you only have them a few months out of the year, and while the produce then is terrific, at other times it is rather marginal.

Out here I have discovered a number of markets in North County that I enjoy visiting, and buying produce and other goodies from.

Carlsbad has a Farmers Market every Wednesday from 1 - 5 PM and on Saturdays from 9 - 1. They are located at Roosevelt and Carlsbad Village Drive. There is a great array of stuff here, including flowers, cheeses, granola, plants and on and on.

There is a good market also in Solana Beach in the Cedros District (Cedros Street) on Sundays from 2 - 5 PM.

I have been to the one on Vulcan in Encinitas (Leucadia) only once during the winter and there was not much to offer. But I suspect it was more the time of year than the quality of the market. Open on Sundays from 10 - 2 PM.

If you don't go to any of the area's markets, you are missing a great source for terrific produce and more at good prices.
