Since we’ve been in SoCal (and probably a little before) we’ve heard about the Farmers’ Market held Sundays at the Orange County Great Park. The Great Park sits on what used to be El Toro Marine Corps Air Station.
It’s 1,400 acres, bigger than Central Park!
We were excited when we headed out this morning. Among other things, we’d read how the Farmers’ Market is dog friendly… and it was… until last weekend.
The health department says pups and food don’t go together. A citation was issued. A ban is now in place. That’s sad, especially when you consider most of what’s for sale was grown in close proximity to animals.
We kept Doppler off to the side and, with my Irvine cousins, explored the market section two-at-a-time.
It was magical. Lots of fresh fruit and other farm products. Lots of cut pieces to try and taste.
It’s good to come hungry.
Helaine came home with a bag of produce. It all looks beautiful.
Here’s a little slideshow with some of what we saw.
Blogger’s addendum: This is one post where I could use an editor! Is it Farmers Market, Farmer’s Market or, Farmers’ Market? All three are represented on the web. I’m going with plural possessive, “Farmers'” but I can’t be sure.
