First of all, I used to live in Orange County, so I do know that it's not LA, but I'm not sure how great an area "Los Angeles Area" actually covers, so I didn't know whether to post this under general "California" or "LA."
Assuming I haven't made an unforgivable faux pas, I'm wondering what the state of good markets is in the Laguna Niguel area -- that is, produce/butcher/seafood markets? I'm thinking of moving down there, but I'm really spoiled where I am now (Bay Area) and I just want to know what to expect. Suggestions about good restaurants would be appreciated too, but I could live without restaurants before I could live without decent markets.
PS I do remember how it is in the area -- I'd be prepared to drive a ways but would prefer something within, say, 15 - 20 miles.
