Favorite Local Food Items

Stephanie

My hometown recently opened a large farmer’s market and I eagerly visited it on the very first day. I bought some loose chai tea, Fuji apples, apple juice, a loaf of rosemary/olive bread, a dozen eggs, peach jam, truffle Parmesan white bean dip and lastly, Moroccan spiced yellow pepper hummus. <<– Spectacular! I can’t wait to go back for more goodies!

The best thing I ever found at a farmer’s market was while visiting in Santa Monica, California – white nectarines. Oh my goodness. Best fruit I’ve ever tasted. They sell them in the supermarkets here, but they are never the same.

What is your favorite locally available food item, and what do you wish you could obtain locally?

  1. I’ve had some pretty spectacular local cheeses, and oddly enough there is a local peanut roaster (CBs Nuts) who offers different varietals with quite distinct flavors – the best analogy I can come up with is coffee where different beans and different roasts produce distinct flavors. One thing that’s always irked me is it’s hard to get good apples in Seattle. Washington is known for its apple production – but the best ones get exported out of state and even out of the country.
