Watermelon Pico de Gallo

by

I’ve finally found the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and the ingredients have been right under my nose this whole time. In fact, I decided to try this new recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, Ree Drummond of The Pioneer Woman. As you know, the theme of our 6th Annual SacFoodies Potluck was […]

Green Bean Salad with Basil and Balsamic

When the weather warms up and summer is in full bloom, one of the most anticipated activities for many is visiting local farmers markets. There is no better place to pick up delicious fruits, veggies, flowers and often times a variety of other specialty products from local vendors. I’d have to say the most robust […]

Davis: One Small Town, Two Distinct Farmers Markets

by

There were many reasons why my husband and I decided to move to Davis a few years ago: it’s a small town with many eateries, various sporting and music events thanks to UCD and oh yeah, the famous Davis Farmers Market.  It wasn’t until we settled in that I came to find out that Davis […]

Farmers Market – X & 9th Streets

I never really appreciated fresh produce before I moved to Sacramento two years ago.  Things like fruit stands and farmers markets overflowing with fruits and vegetables, likely picked and delivered straight from nearby farms that morning, just don’t exist in Phoenix as they do in California.  These days, Sunday morning visits to the farmers market […]

Loving the Farmers’ Market

by

A few weeks ago, fellow SacFoodie Kris and I joined members of the San Francisco Professional Food Society on a tour of the Sacramento Farmers’ Market at 6th and X (you know, the one under the freeway). I’m embarrassed to say that I had yet to go to that particular market as I often hit up Downtown […]
