Encino Farmer’s Market

The ongoing debate over organically, versus locally grown food, is not likely to produce a winner anytime soon, but right here in our lovely community, you can find the best dreamstime_2982498of both worlds at the ONEgeneration Encino Farmers Market. It runs year-round on Sundays, from 8 a.m. -1 p.m. at 17400 Victory Blvd. (between White Oak and Balboa).
 
It truly is a weekly destination where neighbors and families can get together, grab a bite from any of the prepared offerings such as omelets, gourmet tamales, warm lattes or smoothies, all while planning your shopping excursion. Once you’re full, perusing the abundance of fresh seasonal produce can take all afternoon, but is a great way to work off your hearty breakfast. At its peak, around 40 farms participate, with about one third of them operating as organic.
 
Alongside the fresh fruit and vegetables, visitors can also find bakeries, fresh fish, flowers, artisan cheese, chicken, eggs, honey, as well as, handmade crafts like candles, soap, jewelry and clothing. Imagine the gorgeous Sunday feast you can create with items harvested by members of your own community, and the healthy items you can incorporate into your meals for the rest of the week. The ongoing nature of this beautiful market adds to the close-knit, relaxed lifestyle we enjoy year-round here in Encino. If you are not currently a member of our community, let me show you how we can make that happen. My name is Carol Wolfe and nobody does it better.

There are many wonderful things to do in Encino through out the year.  One of my favorites is fast approaching. The Taste of Encino will be held on October 12th this year.  If you have missed this event in the past you won’t want to miss it this year. This 21st version of the annual event promises to blow out all of the stops for a spectacular fun filled family event.

This year the Taste of Encino will feature a Business Expo, a Wellness Pavilion, Arts & Crafts, Children’s Activities, four separate stages with live performers, a Beer & Wine Pavilion and of course the star of the show will be foods showcasing all of the truly spectacular restaurants in the Encino area. New additions this year will be a Home and Garden Show and a Disaster Preparedness Expo.

The Event will be held on Ventura Boulevard between Balboa and Amestoy between 10 and 5pm on October 12th.  For more information or to register as a Sponsor or Business contact The Encino Chamber of Commerce.
