Find a Farmers' Market in Your Town

Daryl Hannah has a nice piece about the importance of buying your veggies at farmers' markets on her vlog, dh love life.

She links at the end to farmersmarket.com to help you find a farmer's market near you. They have five listed for my city, Oakland. I've listed them at the end of this post.

My husband and I went to a new farmers' market in Oakland, the Temescal Farmers' Market, a couple weeks ago, where I took the photos of the beets and tomatoes, and almost all of the produce there was organic, which was a real treat.

The Temescal Farmers' Market and is on Sundays, year-round, from 9 AM- 1 PM in the DMV Parking Lot at 5300 Claremont Ave.


Check out these heirloom tomatoes. Yum!

  1. I just watched Daryl's video today. We're so incredibly lucky to live right around the corner from the twice-a-week Davis farmer's market.
