When I first moved to California, 14 years ago, shopping for food was a way to get to know my new environment, it was a little adventure (in some ways it is still an adventure). I lived in Orinda then and I remember when the farmers' market started there. So, for my first contribution to Francesca's blog, I decided to talk about farmers' markets (the post is in Italian and English).
I do not get all my food from farmers' markets, so I am planning to talk about other interesting shopping options in future posts.
Since today is February 29, I will conclude by letting you know that leap year in Italian is anno bisestile.
