Mauro Perez has been farming for 25+ years in Los Osos, CA on his 15 acre farm. He attends seven markets a week, including two in Santa Barbara. You can find seasonal vegetables at the Perez Produce Booth with a wide variety of fresh veggies such as beets, Swiss chard, cilantro, cabbage, sugar snap peas, Romain lettuce, red and green leaf lettuce, and spinach. In the summer, squash, tomatoes, and green beans are among the many vegetables that Mauro will bring to farmers markets.
When we asked Mauro's daughter, Rachel, why she likes coming to the Thursday Night Farmers' Market she replied, "The fresh produce is picked daily, it's a good deal, it uses less plastic, pays well, it's fun, and I get all my veggies for free!"
