May at L.A. Farmers Markets: Your Virtual Grocery List
McGrath Family Farm's pea tendrils
It's May at Los Angeles farmers markets, bringing the season's first cherries and sweet corn, Bloomsdale spinach -- which Alex Weiser of Weiser Family Farms is growing longer this year up in Tehachapi; something he does when he's not shooting videos of chefs at the market and posting them on Twitter -- and spring garlic, English peas and flowering pea tendrils. Check out our virtual grocery list, taken at the Santa Monica and Pasadena farmers markets. And yes, it tastes as good as it looks.
