I don't know about that challenge, but I do shop regularly at farmers' markets in an effort to eat healthier. BTW, if you hit the Claremont farmers' market after 1 p.m. when it's almost closing time, the farmers start selling veggies 3 for $1 so they don't have to lug it back home. Selection is limited though. It was purely by chance that I found that out. Did you try the Kiwiberry then? And I looove Henry's. I buy my spices in bulk from there.

Fava beans are in season! I made fava bean dip and salad, as well as munching on them plain. Bought a bag of cucumbers and made a nice vinegary cucumber salad. Now I gotta figure out what to do with my golden beets.

When I lived in Santa Barbara (in your 100-mile radius) I would often cruise their farmer's market with delight. Too bad I no longer live there. Is there a web site I can log on to see if there is a farmer's market somewhere near Anaheim where I reside?

WC, I know of the Kiwiberry in Claremont, but haven't tried it yet. I'm saving myself for the Pinkberry that is supposed to open soon at Victoria Gardens. And I saw piles and piles of fava beans at the farmer's market, but besides liver and a nice chianti, I wouldn't know what to do with them.

Jeremy, you can find your nearest farmer's market at http://www.cafarmersmarkets.com/.

Well, my recipes don't call for you to kill a census taker just for the liver. :P

I have no idea how to choose fava beans. I think they're pretty hardy b/c of those double layers of shelling. Just avoid ones with any black or brown spots that show bruising. And feel along the pods to make sure the beans are nice and big. You wouldn't want a deceptively big pod, and once you open it it, the bean is tiny and shriveled. Oh man, if you had a dirty mind, those last two sentences don't sound so good...

Hi, found your blog through the ELC website. Hilarious stuff. I never thought of west coast rap in relation to eating locally. I like the cut of your jib.

WC, thanks for the fava bean pointers, I'll put them to good use soon.

Teddy, I like the cut of your jib as well sir. Good day. I said good day!

Your articles make complete sense out of each topic.
