I'm going to the farmer's market in Santa Monica now that I have my dad's old Astrovan to drive around. Here's what I picked up. Strawberries, straight out of SoCal. They're good. The tomatoes are Japanese Momotaro, you can tell by their pale red color. I can see these a mile away. They smell great through the bag. Cucumbers. Japanese kind. They're shorter and narrow. These make great pickles and taste fine as is with a bit of salt or dressing. And a few good organic apples from the Korean farmers.
