Your Guide to Local Farmers Markets

Spring time means longer days, beautiful flowers, sitting on porches and eating farm fresh foods. Don’t you agree!?

And luck for all of us, the Conejo Valley and surrounding 805 area are home to an abundance of farmers markets.

This Week’s Edition {eat. shop. play. explore.}

Hello Weekend! Hello Fun! Hello coffee! I was up all night with a 4 month old who thinks it’s fun to wake up every 3 hours — so, bring on the coffee!  But at least it’s Friday and time to share this week’s edition covering where to eat, drink, shop, play, and explore in the 805.  I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on heading outdoors and enjoying this lovely Spring weather:)

Best of… Dog Friendly Restaurants {805 area}

As I am sure you have come to realize, we love dogs {and pretty much all animals} but especially our cuddly canines. Conveniently enough, there’s a multitude of places around the 805 where you can bring along your furry friend and eat (or just drink ;), hike, and play.  We are lucky to live in a place with so many dog friendly restaurants, parks and beaches! Check out this quick list of our 10 favorite spots (ok, maybe a few more…) to enjoy with your own furry loved ones.
