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.
