Martin and I went out to Berkeley this morning to check out a used gear sale at REI and because we didn't make it out early enough to get first ins, we ended up having a few extra hours to hang out, and it was amazing!! The moment I suggested a possible farmer's market in the area, we happen to drive right by the Berkeley farmers market! We parked, and found it to be are most favorite yet! We bought some delicious white nectarines, heirloom tomatoes (a new recent fav), basil, an orchid, and just down the street we found a toy shop that sold one of Martin's favorite games!!
I would recommend going to farmer's markets in the your area. Santa Cruz was our favorite up until today! But supporting local farmers is a great thing, and we should start to appreciate healthy locally grown things, and helping those who are trying to make a living as opposed to helping company's who already have enough money!
