Asparagus from Shoua L. Vang
These last two market weekends have had that feel of the season being in full swing.
The bouquets of flowers, flats of garden starts and groups of
families dancing to the music, all screamed "market season is here"!
That market season feel has happy market-goers strolling the aisles with a fresh cup of coffee and a treat from Chris & Lori's Bakehouse, like their chocolate chip sconuts (pictured).
The spring baskets were filling up with fresh asparagus, spring onions and bags of early season greens, all great signs of an abundant market.
Seasonal favorites are always a plus of weekly market shopping, but we're also delighted to find those specialty items like unique sauerkrauts from What Got Gathered (pictured).
Elsewhere around the market, special finds included feta cheese from Dreamfarm, fresh tortillas from Tortillas Los Angeles and loaves of sliced Rustic French bread from Stella's Bakery.
As we push further through May, we encourage you to enjoy those spring flowers, like daffodils, tulips and other bouquets accented with fragrant lilac blossoms.
From bouquets to hanging baskets, the May market season has the variety you're after when it comes to brightening up your home and garden spaces.
So come on out and make the most of what the spring season has to offer, and while you're at it, grab something special and unique such as Ms. Mango Mama Jam from Steppin' Out Foods (pictured).
From staples to specials, nothing beats shopping these May market mornings.
See you at market!
