I just love the Farmers' market and this week I visited Torrance and it was awesome! Torrance has one of the larger Farmers' Markets in Los Angeles and if you're in the area I highly recommend it! Even if your not, it's worth the trip. They have everything you would ever want and then some. They have a great prepared food section so it's great if you just want to pick up a quick and affordable lunch! Come and enjoy the live music and get all those fresh fruits and veggies that are so good and good for you! (0 comments)
