If you’ve endured a winter anywhere, well, east of the California border, you may understand the unbridled glee that we non-natives feel about spring farm markets. Yeah, that’s us fondling the spring onions and caressing the asparagus.
Weird? You try living on beets, potatoes and cheese all winter.
In the next few weeks, BiteClub heads to some off-the-beaten path farms and markets throughout SoCo. Places like Greenstring Farm, Tierra Vegetables and Canvas Ranch.
But that’s just the start. Where are some of your favorite Sonoma County spots to pick up fresh fruits and veggies? What about eggs, milk or meat? Do you have a secret source, or an incredible find? Think outside the Big Box stores and let us know who’s the best CSA and where to find the freshest greens.
We’ll share the bounty.
