There is nothing like spring time in the Central Valley! The almond and cherry trees are in bloom along the Blossom Trail, wildflowers and California Poppies dot the roadsides and bees buzz from plant to plant hurrying to make another year of delicious honey.
In spring, the seasonal produce at the Visalia Farmers Markets are getting more colorful and diverse. It’s a great time to venture away from what you normally buy at grocery stores and try new and fresh foods that may be foreign to your taste buds. If you are a farmers’ market novice, this could be a good starting point for your visits!
Some of the popular foods returning to the Market include: Apricots, Artichokes, Arugula, Asparagus, Assorted Greens, Blueberries, Bok Choy, Carrots, Cherries, Cilantro, Dill, Fava Beans, Green Garlic, Kale, Leeks, Lemons, Lettuces, Mint, Mustard Greens, Oranges, Parsley, Red Onions, Snap Peas, Snow Peas, Spinach, Spring Onions, Strawberries, Swiss Chard, Eggs, Cabbage
