It's July at Los Angeles farmers markets, which means an avalanche of stone fruit — Santa Rose plums, apricots, nectarines, peaches — as well as a few more mulberries if you're lucky, corn, eggplant, melons and the first wave of the coming glut of tomatoes. Welcome to early summer; it's comforting to know that this heat is good for something. Check out our virtual grocery list, taken recently at the South Pasadena and Pasadena farmers markets. And yes, it tastes as good as it looks.
