Santa Monica's Farmer's Markets


I love all of the farmer's markets I have access to living in SM. It is really amazing and not something I ever want to take for granted.

I left for the market late today. I closes at 1pm and I arrived at 1pm! Everyone was closing up "shop" as I arrived. It is amazing to see all the work that each vendor puts into the market each week. It comes across effortlessly but think about all the time involved each market day. The time involved in growing each selected fruit/vegetable, picking, packaging, hauling, setting up the booth/tent, Selling, rearranging, packing up just to turn around and do it all over again next week. I left the market today so thankful to all of my faithful market vendors. I wish I could tell them each what a difference they make in my community.
