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, …

An Unexpected Local Getaway {Mandalay Bay}

You may or may not be counting down the days, but we’ve got a 3-day weekend coming up!  Needing a break, but not wanting to get too far out of town?  There is a surprising local getaway that doesn’t get nearly enough notice — Mandalay Bay.

…no, I’m not talking about the Mandalay Bay of Las Vegas fame.  And I know what else you’re thinking: Oxnard?? Really??

I was a doubter myself, until Brett and I checked in at The Mandalay Bay Embassy Suites for a quick weekend away.
