Thousands of miles from California, my "farm-to-table" philosophy followed me to the streets of Philadelphia. Urban life isn't far from the farm when local markets are so close at hand. A short walk in any direction and you'll find everything from small, farmers market-type stores to up-scale Whole Food-ish shopping experiences. It was Sue's Produce Market that had me feeling my California roots.
Well positioned just inside the door of this diminutive little produce market were boxes of peaches and cherries -- proudly emblazoned with the land of their birth! Yep, California!
And down the way, boxes of California's very own Vitamin Sunshine "C" in the form of oranges.
The best of California agriculture there in the in the "City of Brotherly Love." A very good reason to love it!
