Farmer’s Market Find – Island Farms

This weekend’s Farmers Market find(s) are brought to you by Island Farms. This is one of our go-to stands each weekend for two delicious fiber-packed treats: Apples and Raisins. It is a very rare occurrance if we leave without purchasing something from this family-run farm.

aren’t they adorable?? 🙂

There history is quite extensive, and all summed up by a local blogger for the Studio City Patch, Melody Dosch, who did a  wonderful article depicting this humble family farm.

Each Sunday Mat and I pay a visit to Alan and Lora to grab these amazing pink lady apples:

best pink ladies ever!

Seriously, I do not think I have ever had a more clean and crisp tasting apple than these bad boys!

And we do not leave without grabbing at least a quarter pound of their sun-dried Thompson raisins, as well as an assortment of their very best dried fruit!

the Thompsons are my fav – super dark and robust! Mat on the other hand likes the sweet golden raisins (not pictured here)

Such a delicious snack, either solo, or added into a homemade trail-mix!  Most importantly, their dried fruits are completely free of preservatives and added sugars!

Quality and service are the two key ingredients this family serves up each weekend with their fresh picked products.
Not to mention – once pepper season rolls around, they offer up the best peppers!
