Every Wednesday night, we have a farmers market set-up in the Northridge Shopping Mall parking lot. Farmers from all around the area bring their best produce to the farmers market in trucks, and you can buy unusual fruits and vegetables ‘fresh off the farm.” The thing keeps me wanting to go there is: I always can find some kind of vegetables that most of the Western or local super markets don’t carry, like pumpkin flowers, sweet potato leaves, bell pepper leaves, raw peanuts….I know most of them might sound strange to you, but if you ever lived in Asia, and grew up there, you would know what I mean. I am very used to American food already after living in California for almost four years, but still, those “strange” food remind me of my home, and remind me those “old times.”
For shopping in a farmers market, what outfit could be better than comfortable boots for walking and cut off shorts? I put the scarf on the bag at the last minute as we left the door, I like the color of the scarf coordinated with the rest of the outfit.
