Ladera Farmers Market

In case you're considering a farm box this week, here's what to expect:

In this week's farm boxes:

Coming from our Petaluma fields, we're including Baby Mixed lettuce and carrots.

This week's batch of Comanche Creek's delicious Caprese tomatoes is likely to be the last of the season! And Dosner Organics is supplying us with the basil to round out this week's Italian theme.

We have awesome Satina potatoes from our friends over at Weiser Family Farms. We are also including organic cauliflower, red kale, cilantro, radishes, zucchini, green onion, and Napa cabbage.

Please be mindful that due to excessive heat caused by the fires and scorching temperatures lately, some of your veggies may have some aesthetic blemishes. We are doing our best to navigate around this, but you may notice that some of the veggies have burnt tips or a slight ash residue that should come off with a bit of extra washing. Welcome to the true farm-to-table experience during the California wildfire season!

About A Dozen Protesters Arrested in Beverly Hills - MyNewsLA.com

Hmm, not sure how I feel about the context our community was mentioned in by the Beverly Hills Councilman–associating their community with the likes of Ladera Heights in an attempt to sound humble?

“The median household income of Beverly Hills is not even in the top 10 of LA County,” Mirisch wrote. “It is less than Walnut, Redondo Beach, Marina del Rey. It’s on a par with Ladera Heights. 9.5% of our residents are under the poverty line.”
