Sprouts of Promise brings sprouts of flavor!
This Saturday we welcome Heinz and Julie from Around the World Herbswith their vibrant wheatgrass, delicate arugula sprouts, and nutty sunflower sprouts. Their color is vibrant, and they are jam packed with nutrients that are alive with flavor and health benefits. Pick these living plants right before you toss them into your favorite salad, grain, or protein, they will add color and flavor to just about anything. Come get sprout recipes at the market this Saturday, now that’s nutritious+delicious!

Sprout it Up!
Sprouts can add nutrients and flavor to your life, so use some imagination & sprout it up! Add the radish sprout to an almond crusted, seared scallop or the sunflower sprouts to an orange and almond salad. Top grilled chicken with a handful of sprouts for a colorful change to a boring garnish, or you can toss spicy sprouts with tomatoes and a little blood orange olive oil. Our harvest grain, kumquat, & spicy sprout recipe is a simply satisfying side, and a simple recipe from Anais Tangie. Need tricks of the cooking trade? You can always ask at the info booth, we're happy to help guide you to living the farmers' market lifestyle. This Saturday we are adding more nutrients, more flavors, and more farmers’ to our market. Come enjoy!

Farmers' Market Feast 
Anais+Raya have created a culinary collective at Picnics Kitchen and are hosting Farmer's market feasts to highlight our local chefs, farmers and businesses. Every Sunday we open our doors and kitchen to the Costa Mesa community for a feast prepared in an open kitchen using fresh produce from the SoCo Farmers’ Market and Newport Beach Farmers’ Market. We blend vegan, gluten-free, free-range, grass-fed, organic and raw foods together, and serve our guests family style at a communal table. See what Greer’s OC has to say! Reserve your ticket and join us in creating community through food.  XOXO, Anais + Raya.

Health and Wellness Fair
Join Living FitOC every month for "Health & Wellness Day" at the Market; for a truly unique experience where we bring together local farmers, fitness trainers, yoga instructors, healthy chefs for a SoCo Saturday filled with cooking demos, wellness consultations, and kids activities. All for you to learn more about locally grown produce, easy exercise moves, and nourishing cooking tips.

Find our QR Codes -- the little square bar codes you can scan with your smartphone -- on our stands, so you can scan and find out unique recipes for your favorite produce, as well as how long that particular whole food will be in season. Rain or shine meet us at SoCo Farmers' Market from 9-2, on the first Saturday of the month, and at the Newport Beach Farmers’ Market from 9-2, on the last Sunday of the month.
