Mar Vista Farmer’s Market Wrap-Up August 14, 2011

It was a June Gloom Day in August here in Mar Vista, but that didn’t stop the crowds from coming out to get their veggies at the Mar Vista Farmer’s Market!

Today was a big apple day at the Market: Gravensteins were here for one day only! Did you read about Walker Farm in the LA Times last week?

Also, have you tried Skylake Ranch’s Pomegranate products? This is Chris Brown, Operations Manager, with a couple of the things they make. I tried the fruit spread he gave me and it’s very nice; not too sweet and with a little sour bite. Just my speed. They have syrup and salad dressing I’d like to try as well.
