When I realized this was all because she was taking me to ogle fresh local produce at the farmer's market on Santana Row, I did a small happy dance on the inside. I am, after all, pretty much obsessed with photographing fresh produce anytime I'm at a farmer's market, so having a new market to visit and photograph was definitely a treat. My mom assured me that even though the market was on the small side compared to the one I frequent, the produce was every bit as gorgeous.
As usual, she was right...
|A growing trend at certain farmer's markets around the nation. Hopefully there will come a day when all markets will accept EBT cards from those on SNAP assistance.|
|Love. This. We need this in Sacramento!|
But there was more to the farmer's market at Santana Row than scrumptious produce and great deals. From piping hot kettle corn to homemade baked goods, there was a little something for everyone to enjoy...
|Love the variety of colors, especially the light blue ones!|
|Cutest Employee of the Month EVER.|
|Ahhh, at last I have found the Bolani stand!|
|Mmmm... spinach bolani...|
|Some of Bolani's incredible cheeses & spreads. That jalapeño jelly is phenomenal!|
|Fun display outside one of the many restaurants surrounding the market|
It was a wonderful morning at the market, and even though I may not be able to go very often, I'm definitely looking forward to my next trip to the market on Santana Row. I wasn't able to take too much home with me, but I did score some Bolani, that jalapeño jelly, and some of those gorgeous strawberries & raspberries from the Calvillo Brothers stand. Be sure to stay tuned for a new recipe featuring those luscious berries later this week! :)
