I told a good friend and fellow farmers market and food enthusiast, Chelsea, about my vision for this blog and she was unsurprisingly very excited. As a result, she will be blogging with me about her finds and recipes at the farmers market. We frequently go to the farmers market together early on Sunday to make sure we don’t miss the best selection of veggies.
Our goal is to make it easy for our friends and readers to come up with delicious meals with fresh and seasonal foods found mostly at the local farmers market.

My name is Lisa. Welcome to The Week in Food, where I will share with you my week by posting my farmers market finds and the recipes I use to prepare delicious and healthy dinners.
I love the farmers market and food, but I love it even more when I could prepare easy meals throughout the week with minimal effort and maximum flavor. In an effort to hold myself accountable to making creative and satisfying dinners throughout the week, I decided to share them with the world.
All produce comes from the local farmers market in Santa Monica, which I visit on Sundays to stock up on most of the ingredients for my meals. The other stuff (stuff I cannot get at the market) comes from either Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.
Every Sunday I do the shopping. I always let the ingredients dictate what I will make, not the other way around. The benefits to this are: the fruits and vegetables I buy will always be fresh and in season, I will support the local farmers, and I will help to reduce the amount of fuel used to transport produce from across the country (and from out of the country) to major supermarket chains.
I will share all the ingredients I purchase every week and share my creations (and recipes!) as they come.
Thank you for reading and enjoy!
