Ventura (the city) - looking for recs in the area

c oliver | Sep 29, 2010 04:54 PM

We're spending next week (yep, I waited rather late for this!) in Ventura, doing a house exchange. I know it's pretty close to the town with a distant view of the ocean. This area doesn't get a ton of coverage but I'm hoping for some recs. We tend to eat breakfast and/or lunch out and cook dinner. We're up to some wineries. Up to Santa Barbara for a day is fine. A friend used to live in Oxnard and I remember good dining in the area. Also a farmers market but couldn't begin to tell you where that was. Someone on CH posted about a particular type of shrimp that's available in the area. Probably not looking for anything more than casual and moderate price (<$20 per entree). Won't be going into LA. Any good independent groceries? LOVE good, plain breakfasts out. Does this give y'all enough to work with? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks as always.
