Normally I feel fear if I run into someone holding a sharp knife on the street, but since it's Gary's Knife Sharpening at the Mar Vista Farmers Market I feel happy...is that weird?

A really convenient service; simply drop your kitchen knives off when you arrive at the market and pick them up when you leave.  Careful, they will come back to you razor sharp!

Oooooo....squash are in season!  Get ready for the orange, sweet delight of a "New Crop of Flavorful Organic butternut squash"!

Or maybe "flavorful" squash isn't your modus operandi and you crave a gourd that is a little more...how do you say it, "fancy"?  Mar Vista Farmers Market has got that too with spaghetti squash!

Farmers Markets should also be called "Flower Markets" with their varied display of edible and non-edible varieties. But which categories do "sunflowers" fit in?  You can eat the seeds. Hmmmm....Either way, expect some beautiful sunflower shirts arriving to our online store soon!

I used to go to Santa Monica Farmers Market Sunday and thought it was the best westside market on for the weekend.  But after the past year of coming to Mar Vista, I believe any farmers market foodie should make it a destination on their food bucket list.

Do you bring knives to farmers markets to be sharpened?  Do you prefer Santa Monica or Mar Vista Sunday?  I love hearing comments from my friends below :)
