The Sunday Family Farmer’s Market Report, Los Angeles

Apples are back at the little farmer’s market near our house. Well they never really went away, as nearly nothing does producewise in freakishly fertile Southern California, they just got mushy (and aspargus got all fibrous and fennel got all licoricey and tough). But this week we scored some tiny little crisp and sweet gala apples that are good enough to introduce back into heavy snack rotation with the kids. What’s more, they’re are perfect size for little hands.

In other family-friendly farmer’s market news, Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, California, is gearing up for it’s Fall Harvest festival Sept. 30-Oct. 31, a month of activities that include tractor rides, petting zoo, and something called a corn cannon. In our experience Underwood produces consistently delicious produce, particularly lettuces and tomatoes (they’re not organic, but practice sustainable farming with minimal spraying; check out for details on their practices and events).

Bonus for location scouts: they’re not just family friendly, but film friendly, too.

    It’s yellow tomato season here in Wales and our farmer’s market, situated on the River Taff in the center of Cardiff, was teeming with the sweetest tomatoes of the season….yum.
