It was quite a day, yesterday. Though I’d been to the Downtown Campbell Farmers’ Market years before, this visit was special, owing to my increasing interest in organic foods, grassfed meats, and wild caught fish. It’s funny how once your awareness has been elevated in some particular area, you see things you looked at before, but never really saw.
This must be the best farmers’ market in the South Bay Area. They had virtually everything one could want, with the exception that the eggs were only cage free and not pastured. Well, at least I still have my source at Whole Foods for that. But, they had grassfed beef, wild-caught fish, and all the other normal fare.
How about some photos? They can all be clicked upon for the hi-res versions.
So, I got away with fresh sauerkraut, leaf lard, blackberries picked the evening prior, a beefsteak tomato, raw grassfed butter, two grassfed ribeyes, two leg steaks of grassfed lamb, and a couple of 80% dark chocolate bars with cherry and red pepper.
Once we returned home, we dropped off the stuff and hopped on the bikes for a ride to the local cinema to see Food, Inc.
What a great prelude to an amazing film. I’ll spoil you with the film’s details in my next post. I have quite a lot to say about it.
