You have to know when and where the various farmers markets are if you live downtown. I love walking down the street to the Pershing Square Farmers Market. In general, the vibe is sociable and I can talk about food with the people there. Also, there is great variety between stands and amongst the variety of produce. Imagine over a dozen varieties of citrus: cara cara oranges, cuties, manderines, pamelos, etc. This past Wednesday, a friend of mine and I went to the market and I was able to pick up some huge strawberries from my home town (Oxnard/Port Hueneme), as well as asian pears, swiss chard, kale, persian cumbers, and home-made pita to name a couple of things in my canvas bag. The produce taste fresh, is priced well, and has very positive impact on both the environment and local economy. Go out and try it.
