Willow Creek Farm did such a nice job displaying their vegetables and fruits that I asked to take a photograph.  The chalkboards were a nice touch to their display.

Farmers Markets in California

Here is a list of Farmers Markets from Red Bluff to Redding, California.

Farmers markets in Redding and Redbluff

The first list has just about every city in California, except Weaverville, California, and maybe some other small towns.

The Weaverville, California, Farmers Market is on Wednesday Evenings in the Meadow on Highway 299, next to the Highland Art Center. The market starts at 4:00 pm and goes until 7:00 pm.

Also when traveling in California, not on Interstates, but on the smaller local highways, you will find lots of fruit and vegetable stands. Highway 99 between Red bluff and Chico for example you will pass many stands. And also on Highway 20 from Marysville to Grass Valley, you will see one or two. And also on the highway 99 from Chico to Yuba City and Sacramento, Highway 99 you will find lots of fresh fruit stands, with nuts, dried fruits, fresh fruits and vegetables. Along with Jams, and whatever else can be made from the local fruits and vegetables. Careful driving on these highways! They are in the country and only two lanes.

I love my Grandmother’s Meyer Lemon tree in Healdsburg, California.  It is huge, and old, but not super tall.  So you can pick lots of lemons.  It produces so many lemons also, and sometimes, all year round. Unfortunately, my grandmothers house is a few hours away, and I sometimes need to buy lemons locally.

Grandma’s Meyer lemons are the best.

I love the local health food store, Orchard Nutrition. They always have some local, Shasta county, fruit and/or vegetables, for their customers. In the winter/spring, they often have fresh Meyer lemons and at a very reasonable price. Sold by the pound not per fruit.  They have them right now I was just in there the other day.
