Another advantage to living along the central coast are the Farmer’s Markets.
For a very reasonable price, you can buy fresh seasonal fruits and vegatables locally grown.
It is amazing how tasty food is that has been freshly picked!
I use to think buying fresh food from the supermarket was my best choice.
Not any more. From the sensory experience to the nutritional value and on to the bigger picture issues of energy conservation, I now opt for the Farmer’s Markets whenever I can.
