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.”
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.
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 from Crack Nuts.
Fresh & locally sourced jams from Coldwater Canyon Provisions
…& the best breads & pastries – 100% handcrafted.
Some people like to walk through Costco sampling foods, not us – we love the samples at Farmers’ Markets.
