The quiet of an early morning is something I truly value. The air smells like fresh coffee while the empty streets await all of us little humans. Early mornings are especially nice at the Santa Monica Farmers Market. It's officially(!!) that time of year when there aren't enough days in the week to cook all of the incredible eats that California has to offer. The other day Rob sent me this image, and I'd say it's quite accurate in both tone and message. Memes are the truth-tellers of our generation.
I've been arriving at the market about 45 minutes before it opens so I can see what's new prior to my favorite stands become trading pits. Market mornings have also been helping me learn how to use the manual setting on my camera...100 photos of broccolini at a time.
