Market to Table: Marin Civic Center Farmers’ Market

It’s foggy in San Francisco, but over the Golden Gate Bridge and through the rainbow (tunnel), it’s sunny and blue skies. Eva and I had a hankering for a market-to-table meal, so we drove out to the Marin Civic Center Farmers’ Market (California’s third largest farmers’ market) to hob nob with organic farmers and ranchers, local chefs, gourmet-food purveyors, and a lot of wide-eyed hungry appetites. Our goal was to create a simple, fresh meal using recipe ideas from the market purveyors.
