Today on the way to church we came across a man riding a horse with a santa hat on. Not a common sight in San Diego, so I snapped a pic on our way in to church. Then we found out Liberty Station had just started holding a Farmer's Market a couple weeks ago, so we decided to check it out. We're Farmer's Market junkies. This was a decent sized market, especially for how new it is. There was a huge selection of vegetables and fruit, persimmons were awesome. There was a wide variety of food too, Ghanaian, Japanese, Hawaiian, Turkish, Egyptian, and Mexican were among some of the food we tried. Jeanne got a Hibiscus tea from the Egyptian booth and it was one of the best drinks we ever had. We got a Yakitori skewer from this little old man that reminded me of Mr. Miyagi. He knew what he was doing, best teriyaki chicken I had ever had! He let us pick out our skewer, dipped it in Teriyaki and grilled it for another 30 seconds and handed it to us just like that! Not much better than chicken on a stick. We also got a chicken plate from the Hawaiian booth "Onolicious Grinds" and it was probably the best Hawaiian food I've had. Right up there with our favorite place Nalu's in Aliso Viejo. The guy Chris grew up in Hawaii with his family having Luau's and cooks the food to the same taste. Amazing stuff. We came across some painted wooden bowls that had great art on them. We met a woman with a booth of spices, she had stuff like Maui Onion Sugar and any kind of rub for meat you can think of. I couldn't fit all the pictures I wanted to so go to my Flickr site to see more HERE.
Thanks for this post!
