One thing - among many others - Kaefer enjoyed in Davis was the farmers market. Two weeks ago, only shortly before her Freshman year was over, she asked us whether we'd like to come and go to the farmers market with her.
Of course our answer was yes! I love farmers markets, and the one in Davis is a gem. At the beginning of June it already had so much to offer since it is right in the Sacramento Valley which is part of the Central Valley. One of the regions that feed the nation.
There was fruit in abundance - and those peaches, though small, were incredibly sweet and juicy, exactly the way I like it.
Lots and lots of veggies from radishes to onions and beets and even mushrooms, and everything looked so very delicious.
Herbs either freshly cut or in a pot to plant in your kitchen garden.
I loved this creative marker - great idea. Perhaps I will look for some old forks on my next visit to a thrift store.
Since this is California, there were avocados and raw almonds.
Did I mention eggs?
We were happy to find and eat real German Brezeln, and we could even taste some coffee.
And if you don't like coffee but rather a glass of wine - well, you could taste that as well, and it even was free!
What is a farmers market without lavender?
And when you were done you could sit and listen to the music.
