Time to hit your nearest farmers' market!

Sunset Staff  – May 29, 2020 | Updated May 4, 2021

The timeless tune of April showers bringing May flowers rings true yet again as we here in SoCal have been enduring moody weather through the last month. Between ninety degree hump days and rainy weekends, our taste buds are craving all of the things. Luckily, regardless of a few wet days, the farmers markets and local grocers are blossoming with some of our seasonal favorites. Grab a basket of Harry’s Berries at the Hollywood Farmers Market or scoop up some spot prawns from your local fishmonger to put together these recipes that highlight the best of May’s edible offerings.
