Tuesday is Farmers Market Day in Culver City. It's small, but I love it. Especially compared to the Santa Monica one, where you have to dropkick the neighborhood yogis and snooty chefs just to get your hands on some fresh goods.
Heirloom tomatos finally hit the market this week. Whoopee! Look how many I got! And that's just a portion. Everyone here has been waiting with bated breath for the heirlooms to arrive -- last year, they arrived much earlier. Bring on the burrata!

Farmer's Market acquisitions: red snapper from the fish guy, spring green mix, green beans, summer and patty pan squash, zucchini, yellow & white nectarines, some French kind of melon that made the whole car smell great!
I thought I'd share what I end up doing with all these goodies. Tonight, baked snapper with an almond-garlic-mustard crust, served alsongside a green bean and heirloom tomato salad with a white balsamic vinagrette. It turned out great! Let me know if you want me post any recipes!
