Saturday Smiles: A Small Cozy Farmer's Market In Carpinteria!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

Every so often when we run out of fresh fruit or produce, I can count on the Thursday Farmers Market on Linden Avenue (our main street. 1 and 1'2 blocks long) in Carpinteria.  A few of the vendors who come here are regulars at the Santa Barbara Farmer's Market.  The others are small avocado ranchers and small farms which are part of our city.

These small plums were beautiful to look at and as delicious as they look.

How about these luscious strawberries that grow in a field nearby with an ocean view!

Even the signage is quaint and fun to read.  I loved the description of the golden nugget mandarin.

Blue Ridge Honey comes from hives nearby.  The darker honey is from the avocado blossoms is less sweet and is reminiscent of the taste of molasses.

The reason we went is that we needed more avocados, and why not buy them in the Avocado Capital.

 

Wishing you all an abundance of Saturday smiles and a great rest of the Weekend. A

The plums look wonderful, and I love the price on the avocados.  The small ones here are about $1.00 each!

Good morning, Alexandra and Ron - I agree that the signing/description of the offerrings at the Carpineteria Farmers Market make it a "must visit" spot.

Good morning Ron and Alexandra - you must have had a very early start to post this already.  I love buying produce and honey from our farmer's market.  The tomatoes in season are the best.

Hi Alexandra... I'm not much of a fruit eater... but these all looked very good and I could give in to one of those mandarins (one of the few fruits I'll eat from time to time).

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 it is good, but for us it is an acquired taste.  Obviously it is full of good things that make it taste like molasses.  A

Joe Pryor these plums looked good and tasted good.  Our plum tree still has not ripened, which is due to our consistent marine layer.  A

Michael Jacobs I love our little town market, unlike the Montecito market that is on Friday.  I don't think I have ever bought anything there, just directed a videographer for our client's site.  A
