Farmers market used to be where local farmers bring their green produce and eggs. That is no longer the case with Torrance Farmer’s Market. About 60 California farms participate in this biweekly activity where you can find a large selection of California-grown vegetables, fruits, nuts, eggs, honey, baked goods, fish, flowers and plants.
This is a place where family spend 1/2 day browsing, sampling goodies, meeting old friends and making new friends, having breakfast, lunch or snacks.
Our objective was to get some Greek food, fresh fruits, vegetables and poinsettias. At Mom’s Products, we bought three different varieties of Hummus and Pita bread. I purchased a large bagful of persimmon.
I admit that I have a weakness for beautiful vegetables in a same way some people cannot stay away from sweets. I tend to over-buy! After spending an hour checking out one organic booth after another, we walked away happy with an armful of fruits and veggies. Only thing we weren’t able to find today was poinsettia.
