One of the sweetest farmers. I chanced upon his stall recently.

    • Thanks Karley! Yes, I wanted to try the chocolate hazelnut – but they were out of the Italian Ice and were selling the gelato only by the pint. But the Lemon Ice was deelicious!!

  1. I used to be told lots of stories of the farmer’s market in California, and not having seen one myself imagined a souped up version of the local sabzi mandi you get in these parts. When i looked at the photographs here the first thing that noticed was how posh everything looked (and squeaky clean!)

    Am going to wait to salivate over your recipe’s now. You wouldn’t happen to have a smart, quick way to cook Persimmons would you?
