We’re at the market every week picking up fresh produce to bring you the best of what local farmers have to offer. We love all of our suppliers and encourage our eaters to shop local, eat fresh and make friends with the people who are growing your food. When we asked what Chef Kalman was most excited about this time at the market, he said “everything!”. Please enjoy some pics of what’s in season and being served at Union. — All pics from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market.
