Does anyone know the citrus vendor at the Wed Santa Monica Farmers Market?

We were visiting from NYC two weeks ago and fell in love with the page mandarin oranges sold by a citrus vendor at the Santa Monica Farmers Market on wed, Arizona & 2nd. They had a long table on Arizona, with a few varieties of citrus, mainly oranges, covered by a white mesh net. They had cutup orange wedge samples behind the produce on top of the boxes.

The woman who worked there said they could ship a box out to us, as a favor, and gave me her cell phone. Of course, we lost the paper along our travels home and are now desperately trying to track down the name of the vendor.

Can anyone help?

    Just saw this old thread. Garcia Family Farm is who sells Page Mandarins. This link has their contact info. http://blogs.laweekly.com/squidink/20...

      Stopped by today. It was probably Regier Farms. Right now they've got wonderful Murcutts.
      Here's a good but old story in the LA Times on other vendors.
      Hope this helps.

        that was probably Friends' Ranch. Google 'em. Great growers. Could also have been Polito, but they're on Second and i don't think they ship.
