I started the blog because I totally dig the whole experience of meeting my neighbors and local farmers & artisans. And what better place to learn about the food you eat than straight from the farmer themselves? I even get fabulous preparation tips, that is if the vendors aren't too busy selling their wares. I enjoy being in this environment with my family as we pick out the fruits and vegetables we want to eat, in an open laid back environment allowing us to see and taste where we come from, and also to support the community we live in. I hope to share the sights and stories from my perspective as photographer living and eating in the Sacramento Valley, and beyond!!
The colors, the smells and the feelings that come with purchasing locally are truly a throwback to another time. Where you chat with someone you don't know, and you eat something you have never seen before. And if you slow down just enough you get to see what your neighborhood is made of.
I look forward to sharing my experiences as as I navigate my way through my local farmers markets as well as gems I come across on my travels. Please enjoy one perspective on living a Locavore Lifestyle from a foodie photographer mom.
