One of the best things about living in California is shopping at the local farmers' markets. The produce is amazing and so fresh. I suppose it does take time to ship food all over the country, but to think how long these veggies last in our fridge compared to those from the grocery store. Makes you think, just how old is the produce in the stores? Vinny samples everything we offer him when we go, just wish he'd eat it with as much enthusiasm once we get it all home. But hey, at least it's something!
