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. We didn’t even realize how many there really were until we started researching – which just adds to the ever-growing reasons of why we love living in the 805. We’re so fortunate to have access to numerous farms who provide their locally grown produce, honey & jams, eggs, meats, nuts, flowers and more to our local farmers markets. Pretty amazing, right!?

So now to the important questions, when and where can you find your nearest farmers market? Well, …

Our Go-To Healthy & Tasty Snack {local eats}

Put a little kick in your nuts.

We are totally loving this tagline from one of our favorite local entrepreneurs, Giddy Up Nuts — but, even more, we love this healthy, yet tasty snack!

We first met Kristy Mangia [her last name means “eat” in Italian — what a coincidence?!], owner and creator of Giddy Up Nuts, at the Blue Table Grand Opening party a couple years back.  Her almond snacks were absolutely delicious and we love that Kristy uses fresh, organic ingredients to create unique flavors! Plus, Giddy Up Nuts are …

The Perfect Date and a true Hidden Gem {local eats}

I know, I know. Topanga Canyon??? The valley? And the road is sooo windy. Well, hear me out. Inn of the Seventh Ray is one of the most quintessential restaurants I’ve been to in the area. It is the perfect venue for a special event, such as a Bridal or Baby Shower, and an idyllic spot for a romantic date. I’d say it’s definitely worth the trek.

My first visit to the Inn was for my sister-in-law’s Baby Sprinkle (it was her second baby, hence the sprinkle), and oh.my.gosh was I in heaven. It’s the cutest place in the most picturesque setting — tucked away in the …

Farm Fresh to You {local eats}

{note: I’m gonna be real with you guys right now… I’ve attempted to write this post about 4 different times, but every time my Farm Fresh to You box comes in, I start eating the produce and completely forget to take pictures.  #sorrynotsorry}

About 2 years ago, I got a sweet Groupon deal for Farm Fresh to You, a farm-to-front-porch organic produce delivery service that, well, brings organic produce from the farm to your front porch. (obvs)
