The Original Farmers Market …. Americanized

When I think of farmer’s markets, I picture a bunch of local farmers selling their just picked, dirty, slighty-damaged yet fresh and packed full of flavor produce. There are the vendors too, trying to hock the goods that Ralph’s or Albertsons don’t have room to store in their special produce-ripening refridgerators, but after a few trips you know how to avoid them and their over priced food.

The whole idea of going to a farmer’s market as opposed to the very convienent grocery store (that doesn’t flinch when you pull out your debit card to pay) is that you get produce that is tastier, fresher, closer to home, and healthier.

This place is s major Fail in this aspect. I felt like I was shopping in a Quasi-open air Vons. The produce was stickered and the prices were high. Fruit from Mexico, Canada, and Nes Zealand? I thought we grew apples in America…. Maybe not.

Things were labeled organic but they weren’t actually organic. The fruit was damaged and over priced, but not bursting with flavor. We ended up buying some fruit to get validation for parking. Overall, would not come back to this place for produce… Vons is better.
