Trip to Farm Boy

April 19th, 2009

Took a field trip the other day to Farm Boy–the coolest, ecclectic store I’ve seen. It’s like walking into a Korean Alice in Wonderland. At first, I thought I’d walked into a florist shop. There were colorful arrangements of roses, orchids, and a variety of others I couldn’t even name. A few more steps in was self-serve yogurt, full with fresh fruit and toppings bar. And right next to that, fresh sushi!? Hmm. But a little further in, just past the nuts, dried fruit and sage honey, I found the heart of what Farm Boy is all about…the PRODUCE! My, oh my! Shiitake mushrooms, big beautiful bunches of fresh herbs, exotic star fruit, persimmons, fingerling potatoes, Medjool dates, Greek white figs, champagne grapes…it was amazing to see all the products you could use to make several easy recipes. Everything was of good quality and aesthetically pleasing. The prices here are very reasonable, whether you are cooking for 2 or a small army. If you live in Southern California and into good seasonal produce, go check out Farm Boy!
