Joshua Tree Farmers Market

There are farmers markets everywhere in the United States. They can be on any day of the week and even in tiny towns like Joshua Tree where there are precious few vegetables grown.
There was a good array of early summer produce but very little of it was grown locally and just like the farmers markets in Canberra many of the tomatoes were hydroponic.

There were oranges from as far away as San Diego and these berry growers come from Nipomo which is north west of Los Angeles -  a five hour drive.

The fruit was absolutely delicious. Madison is a fan of raspberries, Gavin prefers strawberries.
