It's April at Los Angeles farmers markets, which means more citrus, Fava beans and sugar snap peas, asparagus and radishes -- and yet more citrus. Check out our virtual grocery list, taken at the Tuesday Torrance Farmers Market. Torrance, by the way, has an enormous farmers market, with many prepared-food stalls and farmers who cater to the large Japanese population in the area. After a morning of shopping? Go eat some ramen at the best ramen shops in L.A., conveniently located within about 5 miles of Wilson Park, where the market is held. And yes, the produce tastes as good as it looks.
