farmers markets & delicious gifts

Our dad was a “foodie.”

Not the fancy or top-reviewed restaurant type, but definitely the “will drive three hours for just-out-of-the-oven loaf of bread type.”

Food find in Los Angeles

Fishing for local catch in Lake Washington

As kids we loved the road trips & walking portions of his hunts for good food… hamburgers in Aberdeen, baked goods in Black Diamond, & dim sum in the Downtown Seattle International District.

All cool places in Washington, with a distinct local flavor.

As adults, we actually started to appreciate the fresh, good food aspect as much as the road trips & walking.

Food find in Los Angeles

Picking & taste testing at a local strawberry farm

Since we like eating our way through Los Angeles, we’ve found some really delicious stuff along the way.

Our food gift baskets are filled with some of our favorite finds.

Farmers’ Markets are still our top favorite places to find delicious, new food gifts.

Years ago, we happened to taste our favorite peanut butter, Spread the Love at the Highland Park Farmers’ Market. ¬†For those of you that think peanut butter is just peanut butter, you probably should try theirs soon.

Over the holidays, we partnered with SEE-LA & the Hollywood Farmers Market & had a booth.

If you’ve never been to this market, it’s massive, filled with eclectic & interesting people, along with some of the best food in the city.

Chili oil & fresh salsas from El Machete

Hava candy (which we had never tried before)

Sprouted Almonds of Los Angeles

Sprouted almonds from Crack Nuts.

Coldwater Canyon Provisions

Fresh & locally sourced jams from Coldwater Canyon Provisions

Fresh-baked bread from the Hollywood Farmers Market

…& the best breads & pastries – 100% handcrafted.

Some people like to walk through Costco sampling foods, not us – we love the samples at Farmers’ Markets.
