Sebastopol Farm Market
It’s November. In my personal opinion, this is the absolute best month to shop the farmers market - except for the lack of peaches! The tomatoes are sweet and luscious still - and they are leaving fairly soon so there is the appreciation that comes from knowing that loss is just around the corner. The same is true for melons!The peppers are fabulous. The greens are happy again. Then, of course, there are potatoes - so many delicious potatoes. Try Bodega Reds from First Light. They are a revived heirloom from Bodega - eat a little history maybe!Finally there is the orange food - all the beautiful and delicious squashes.
