It couldn’t be more fitting…on Earth Day last Monday, Justin and I visited a farmer’s market we’ve never been to, ate fresh picked strawberries from their field and hand-picked our own lettuce straight from the earth. Tapia Bros. Farm is literally just around the corner from us in Encino and I’m kicking myself for waiting this long to visit. I can honestly say I’ve never had better strawberries or salad made with their romaine. It was pretty hard trying not to eat half of the bucket of berries while doing this shoot!
My first lettuce picking experience…bend from the knees and pull it out roots and all!
If you’re in the area you’ve gotta check this place out! Baby sheep, roosters, any type of lettuce you can think of and strawberries that will make you want to start an all strawberry diet. Happy Earth Day and shop local!
