After a busy day at the Farmers Market last Sunday, we stopped by our local Whole Foods Market in Venice. We were there to participate in their Buy Local Campaign, talk to the customers, and sample our crops. Displayed beautifully was our fresh harvest of Romanesco cauliflower, Chioggia, Gold, and Bulls Blood beets, sunchokes, brocolli, and all our colors of heirloom potatoes and carrots. We sampled, we talked farming, nutrition, cooking, and shared many recipes.
The energy and excitement was amazing and that ancient connection between farmer and eater was really going on. It was great to see familiar faces and friends we see weekly at our Certified Farmers Markets as well to meet new interested people who want to know where their food comes from.
Our props to Whole Foods and their customers for understanding that eating local means food that tastes better, is more nutritious, better for the environment, benefits the local economy, and builds a sense of community.
Here at Weiser Farms we feel very fortunate to farm in this wonderful unique place on earth and especially to have the love and support of such a great, diverse, receptive community. Thank you!
If you didn't get the chance to see us, you can now find our produce at various Whole Foods markets in the Los Angeles region.
**And a special thank you to Daniel Beaman, who was kind enough to spend the day with us, taking all these beautiful photos!
