blood oranges

Dylan Yolles Oct 8, 2000 08:24 PM

I really like blood oranges. They can be tough to find. Any fruit store or farmer's market recommendations where they can be bought with any consistency?

    Have you tried Bristol Farms? Or the good old Farmer's Market at Fairfax and Third?

      Try any local farmer's market (the hard-core produce vending kind, not just 3rd and Fairfax). There's a citrus grower at the Sunday Hollywood FM, on the east side of Ivar between Sunset and Selma. Depending on the season, they have tangelos and all sorts of wonderful citrus, including blood reds. They're not as good as Sicilian BROs, but nevertheless tasty and juicy. I can't remember if they're in season now. By virtue of the sheer number of vendors, the Wednesday Santa Monica market is another good bet.

        Thanks - I'll check that out. We should be in the heart of citrus season, I believe.

          Dylan, the blood oranges are now at the markets, so go get them! If you live on the west side, try the Wednesday farmers market along the 2nd Street-Arizona axis in Santa Monica.

            You can find them at a reasonable price (on and off) throughout the year at Trader Joe's.
