It was the first Thursday, in a long time, that we were able to make the Carpinteria Farmer's Market. It was a beautiful, warm summer afternoon and a great time to walk around and sample some fruit.

There was lots of different types of raspberries and lots of veggies. The flowers were vibrant and the strawberries juicy.
I have this habit that I prefer to walk the entire market before beginning to make my purchases.
We walked away with grapes, white raspberries, red raspberries, black berries, and an enormous white orchid. *Which I am praying I won't kill
For dinner we decided to stop at one of our favorite places Corktree Cellars Wine Bar & Bistro. The best part is their Happy hour where you can have a great glass of wine and pair it with there Lobster Mac & Cheese or there wonderful selection of french fries. *My favorite is the Rosemary Parmesan.
We ordered a cheese plate with a cheese called the Purple Haze (France) that was infused with Lavender and a Red Dragon Cheddar (England). For my entree it was Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille that was delicious.
Perfect ending for a perfect day!
If you ever get a chance to visit the area, Carpinteria is one of my favorite spots.
