We get these awesome eggs and fresh chicken from La Bahn Ranch a vendor at the Torrance Farmers Market. The chicken is cage free, grain fed and hormone/antibiotic free which equals the creamiest eggs and meat so fresh it was killed the day before we purchased it. Since I’ve been feeling under the weather this whole week I decided to eat this delicious bird in liquid form. I’m still working on the recipe but once I figure it out I’ll make sure to share it with
you (all 5 of you).
The Torrance Farmers Market is probably one of the best places to go in the South Bay for food, fresh fruits and vegetables. It’s open on Saturdays (and Tuesdays) from 8am to 1pm. Prices are affordable and you definitely get what you pay for, sometimes if you go right before they close you can find some vendors discounting their product. Yesterday we got there around 11:40am and got a loaf of Black Pepper Parmesan for $2 (usually $4.75) at the Manhattan Bread Co. stand.
First things first we had to stop by some of the food stands for some snacks. This lady was selling pupusas, a Salvadorean dish made with a thick corn tortilla filled with cheese and either beans, meat or vegetables topped with slaw and fresh salsa.
Chicken and cheese pupusa…
Washed it down with a strawberry lemonade
What’s a tangelo? We never heard of it either so I asked the lady what they were and she just gave us one and said to try it. Didn’t really help on what it exactly was but they were so good we ended up buying a bag.
I found out later its a hybrid of a tangerine and either a pomelo or grapefruit. So good. Fruits look so much better with the vine still connected.
Seeing fresh herbs and vegetables always boosts my motivation to cook more
Kettle corn, a bag of tangelos, basil, thyme, tomatoes and black pepper parmesan bread for $13.
Screw Ralph’s when you have a Farmers Market in your neighborhood. I know it’s not accessible to go every time you need groceries but make sure you at least try. Talking to the farmers that grew the vegetables you buy is a satisfying feeling and in my opinion makes everything you cook taste better.
