Santa Baraba Farmer’s Market: Unicorn Horn $8 lb
So I figured that these several hours spent in the Phoenix airport would be best spent by blogging, which is why I’m just now getting around to blogging about the Santa Barbara Farmer’s Market, which I went to on Saturday. Basically, I was floored to see things that I’ve only ever seen for sale in supermarkets. Pluots? They’ve got to be fake right?
First of all, this place is huge! According to my girlfriend, it has only gotten bigger, but it’s by far the biggest I’ve ever seen. As local foods become more popular, farmer’s markets are expanding everywhere, with interesting results. In areas like Santa Barbara, EVERYTHING can grow so almost everything is fair game. I bought some jalepenos and chilis for my pickles.
