      I've checked this site but I am not sure which farms would be best to check out. I am looking for apricots, peaches, citrus fruit, dates, figs. I know we probably can't pick all of these but will check out the farmers market if we can't find it at a farm.

      Don't know if the date has passed, but one weekend a year in July, the Orcutt Ranch in Canoga Park which is run by the LA Dept. of Rec. and Parks allows the public to come pick Valencia oranges and grapefruit. They charge $2 a shopping bag or $5 a box for all you can pick. Bring your own bags and boxes. Proceeds go back to the help maintain the ranch.

      Give them a call.....maybe it's this weekend?

          I've been to Underwood Farms in Moorpark a couple of times. It was fun. They charge to get in ($5?) but the prices overall are really cheap. I got a bunch of zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers, green beans, eggplant, etc for less than $20 - You definitely can't get veggies that fresh or cheap at the grocery store!
