Ring in spring at your farmers? market!
Submitted By Kaiser Permanente Fremont
April means spring has officially arrived at your farmers? market. Your farmers offer eggs in a rainbow of natural colors, fresh spring herbs like parsley and cilantro, real local honey, just-picked flowers, fresh grass-fed lamb, and so much more. Gather up all the goodness of spring this month!

Spring is officially here. New things are popping up all over the market. We welcome Guilty Pleasures Baking and offer the best fruits and vegetables around, straight from the people who produce them. Come by and see what has sprung up at the market this month!
? J&J Ramos Farm: Their navel oranges are seedless, peel easily. The Cara Cara orange has a dark pink or red flesh that is very sweet in flavor. The mandarins are just amazing right now, so come give them a try.
? NEW! Guilty Pleasures Baking: Vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free snack options. They offer cookies, and cakes, baklava and biscotti. Come by and give them a nice warm welcome.
? Pamela Soap: This handmade soap is gentle and fresh, created from pure, aromatherapy-grade essential oils, the finest saponified (fats converted to soaps), vegetable oil, and organic botanicals. They blend only natural essential oils for their aromatherapy and skin-healing benefits and shea butter for richness, resulting in this unique gentle soap.
? Clara?s Egg Farm: Farm-fresh chicken eggs that are perfect for all your spring baking and cooking needs. Deep golden yellow yolks from these pasture-raised chickens mean super rich flavors. How about a veggie-filled frittata or omelet?
Don?t forget to use your CalFresh dollars at the market and get a match up to $10 for additional money to spend on seasonal fruits and veggies. Also, check out the Pacific Coast Farmers? Market Association?s (PCFMA) blog (https://www.pcfma.org/) each week. This month we will be featuring spring lamb and why it?s a healthy alternative to beef; soft spring herbs and how to use them; a look at why eggs are different colors; and why you should buy local honey direct from your farmers? market.
Every Thursday, Kaiser Permanente hosts a PCFMA farmers? market right next to the Niles West Building at 39470 Paseo Padre Pkwy, Fremont, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. year-round.
