Shopping Trip to the Hollywood, CA Farmer’s Market!

I try to buy from local businesses as much as possible and one great place to achieve this is at the Hollywood Farmer’s Market.  Not only are you supporting businesses in the area, you are buying fresh foods straight from local farms that have been picked just a few days, if not the day before, at the peak of ripeness!

We usually get there between 9:30 and 10:00am, which is still early enough that plenty of the good pickings are still available.  I’d get there earlier but I do enjoy lounging in my pj’s, drinking coffee and watching my cooking shows on Sunday mornings.  Fruits, veggies, baked goods, fresh juices and jams, honey and other local goods abound and it is tempting to go on a shopping extravaganza and buy it all!!  Then I remind myself… it’s JUST for one week Jen… control yourself!  I usually spend about $50 on enough fruits and veggies plus a few miscellaneous items to last all week.

If you have access to a Farmer’s Market in your area or within a decent driving distance, GO!  It is worth it!  See the little photo slideshow below featuring some of my favorite pics from the outing!
