The farmers market is such an amazing place to explore. So many different cultures, foods, produce and fresh meats all combined in a city block. The Hillcrest market in San Diego is consistently rate the biggest and best farmers market in the city. This morning we ventured down to the city in search of treasures. We were not disappointed. The market provided an amazing selection of exotic fruits and vegetables, plus an equal amount of food vendors from various cultures. They all had samples of their wares, making for a very filling visit.
My favorites were the homemade pestos, hummus, yellow plums,purple heirloom tomatoes and the apples that tasted just picked from the orchard. ( oh how I've missed that flavor)
The florals were beautiful and inexpensive. Things I would have normally ordered from high end florist in my previous home were readily available and a fraction of the cost!
The two produce items I was most excited to get my hands on were fresh squash blossoms and Meyer lemons. If anyone has any suggestions for recipes for either one feel free to suggest them to me!
