Happy July everyone! If you have visited your local farmer's market lately then you have experienced the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies that summer has to offer. It's a wonder to the senses. If you haven't been lately then I encourage you take advantage of the many different markets San Diego has around the city. http://www.sdfarmbureau.org/BuyLocal/Farmers-Markets.php. When shopping at your local Farmer's Market, get to know your vendors. Ask if they are organic, and if not "Certified Organic," what type of farming practices are used. Ask where they are located, do they participate in CSA's? You never know who you can meet and what new interesting tidbits you can learn just by chatting. Salud!
