Farms, Farming, and Farmers' Markets event at SMPL last night

Did anyone attend last night's event at the Santa Monica Public Library? I'm curious to hear what others thought of it.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Santa Monica Farmers' Market, and to celebrate, the library is hosting a three part discussion series called Farms, Farming, and Farmers' Markets.

This week's discussion addressed the question, "what is the future of California's small farms and how can farmers' markets help keep farmers on their farms?"

I really enjoyed myself--I learned a great deal about farmers' markets, got to meet some of the panelists, and devoured delicious food provided by Evan Kleiman. (Now I must visit Angeli Caffe!)

There will be two more events like this--one Aug. 17 and one Sept. 21, in case you're interested.
