Farmers’ Market in Springtime

Tomatero Organic Farm

We are so lucky to live here in Marin County where the Farmers’ Market is year round. It can look a bit sparse during the winter months, not all the vendors come year round, but there is always fresh greens of some kind.

Now, though, I’m seeing more variety. Here are some images from last week’s Market.

The picture above is the stall for Tomatero Organic Farm. They have one of the largest stalls and there is usually a long line of people checking out. They are known here for the different varieties of strawberries they sell. All are wonderfully juicy and tasty.

The other large vendor that always has a large and beautifully arranged booth is Capay Organic Farm.

It’s planting season for tomatoes. Lots of starter plants available.

Summer Splendor

Farm standWhat a wonderful time of year at the Farmers’ Market! I went this morning and took some pictures of the wonderful bounty to be had. I realized I didn’t get any photos of the peaches and other stone fruit, blueberries, broccoli and cauliflower. Maybe next week. Until then enjoy these views of the market.
