Lodi California Farmers’ Market

It is a nice and sunny day here in Lodi California. Lodi is located in San Joaquin County, at the northern part of California’s Central Valley. This wine appellation may not be as touristy as Napa and Sonoma, but the area is known for the world’s best Zinfandel. It is home to over forty wineries, including renowned New World wine brand Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi.

Surrounding the vineyards are various agricultural producers. The county supports the “farm to fork” movement by having a Farmers Market every Thursday afternoons at Downtown Lodi. Over 70 vendors showcase their wines, sell local certified farm-fresh produce, summer fruits, vegetables, cheeses and different food specialties. Must try are the Lockeford sausages, Saint Lou ribs, Filipino spring rolls, Dancing Fox bread pudding, and Hummus Heaven.

  1. There is nothing like a farmer’s market. So many choices. Just look at those apricots.

  2. Farmer’s Markets are one of my favorite things about the US. Even though most of the other countries I wander through have vegetable/etc markets, there is something about a farmer’s market that is unique. My guess would be the percentage of people who really choose and love that life, versus just being born into it, there is a level of satisfaction that comes with that awareness that lends a certain glow. Thanks for the post!
