La Costa Farms Stand: only produce now

Leucadian | Apr 5, 2008 10:45 AM

For years, the fruit and vegetable stand on La Costa Blvd and Saxony Road has been a great source of good produce and specialty items. I stopped by this morning for some just-picked-this-morning stawberries (excellent, by the way).

Unfortunately, they had a visit from the Health Department, and now can only sell produce. No tamales, no bread, no chocolate dipped strawberries, not even honey. My favorite fix (apart from the strawberries) was a bag of El Nopalito chips, and some cooked salsa (Rojo's?), plus a few tamales. Not a big loss for me, since I can get them at El Nopalito, but a huge adjustment for the fruit stand. Apparently they are required to have a kitchen in a permanent building.

The produce is still there, and it's consistently good, so I hope they can survive this latest wrinkle in the health code. It will be a shame if we lose them.
