Sweet Sweet Farmers Market





We went to the farmers market yesterday.
The monkeys enjoyed some shaved ice from SASASWEETS.
The owner Joe Vergara is there every week with his all natural and delicious desserts. Made using only the highest quality ingredients Joe brings his sweet samplings along with his shaved ice and all natural flavorings, to various markets across the city. He had me at "treats handmade with love"!


The brownies, bars, danishes, pastries and cookies all look gourmet with a loving touch of homemade- their combinations are unusual in a usual way. His selection of soft, fresh melt in your mouth cookies include: blueberry white chocolate, peanut butter double chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. Sir S. ate a chocolate chip cookie and said it was amazing.

GMan thought the pineapple flavor was the best- I rather liked his red sided cherry flavor and Sir S. was happy with his lemon and lime.
The tomato varietites are abundant this week and I had a tough time making my 'candy' tomato selection. Lucky for me Priscilla Van Dyke from Van Dyke farms in Blythe, California lets you sample as many as you want.
I went with these.


This is the perfect bite

nice post!
Farmer's Markets and Street Fairs are great. One of my favorite things to do. You never know what your going to see at them.

Look at those tomatoes - heart be still. I would rather have those than the sweets. Your snack is one of my favorites (with gluten free bread). I would stand there and taste test all day!

You are SO lucky! I want a farmers market to go to and some of those tomatoes!

Love farmers markets. Always on the lookout for different colored tomatoes and potatoes. Your boys made good selections as well.

I'm jealous of your selection! We still just have early spring greens, rhubarb, and spring onions. I love all these things, mind you, I'm just ready for a bit more variety. :)

Came over from the GardenMama's Wash Wednesday to say that socks and adult underclothing goes in the dryer. We too are a little uneasy to hang them for all to see. So far my little boy and little girl don't mind but when they do theirs will join ours.
