finally found fresh lamb—yay!
Jimenez Family Farm from Santa Ynez at SM farmer's market (there Wed.+ Sat., plus at Ocean Park and Mar Vista).
they also had rabbit, quail (they'd sold out) and pork.
bought a 4 lb. boneless leg for this Sunday—wasn't cheap (think I paid about $15 a pound), but I'll take this over pre-packaged expensive supermarket lamb any day. plus they'll add $10 reward to a $100 purchase, and they take credit cards.
also bought my first pork belly at Peads and Barnett for $11 lb.
I won't be doing this every week, but happy that the number of stands offering local meat and chicken is multiplying.
can't wait to cook both this weekend.
