Today, I stumbled upon this little farmers market right up the street. As often as I frequent to Manhattan Beach, I was surprised that I had no idea about this place. Believe it or not, it was right up the street! How could I have been so oblivious to this little bustling market? Every Tuesday, they close down the street and host a mini farmers market. Walking past all these little tents, the smell of sweet delights wafting in the air won me over, so I decided to check it out. There were many different stations, selling bread, fruits, veggies, delicatessens from all over the world. Eye candy would be used to describe all the food in the stands. They were so fresh and unbelievably vibrant with color. As I took in the sights of this market, my stomach would growl every time I walked past a food stand. Being the foodie that I am, I said to my sister ” I’m starving!”. We passed this Greek stand, it looked fantastic. The food was on the grill, cooking, charcoal smoke wafting up in to the air. Perfect, Greek food never looked this good. I just had to try it. After scanning the menu, I eventually decided on a Gyro (pronounced as hero), a delicacy in Greece. Basically a Gyro is your choice of meat, Lamb, Beef, or Chicken, wrapped up in Pita bread, with toppings such as lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese, kalamata olives, and of course cucumber yogurt sauce. I was surprised to find out this dish was remarkably similar to my favorite dish. The turkey meatball pita bread sandwich, a dish I grew up with. I had always wondered where in the world would this dish be a part of the local cuisine. At last, my question was answered just by visiting the farmers market, not far from where I am currently at. The Gyro was scrumptious, juicy and plump, it was just right. Who knew, a short walk would take me to a fun filled farmers market. No farmers market experiences are complete without buying something, so of course, I came home with a huge box of fresh strawberries. They were huge fat strawberries, and such a bargain too! Five bucks for each box of strawberries, later on I went to the local grocery store and found that the strawberries were costly and hardly fresh. There is bound to be a farmers market in every city, if you know where to look, perhaps even stumble upon them. How can you go wrong with fresh, delicious fruits, and veggies? Start working on the food pyramid, stay healthy, and of course happy travels!
