It's not too late to rev up the romance, just check in at the Pacific Beach Tuesday Farmers’ Market this Valentine's Day. 

Get in the mood with juicy, sweet strawberries from J.R. Organics, sweet Fiji Apples from Smit Orchards and some lemon quark from Springhill Cheese for dipping. Almonds are considered an aphrodisiac, even without Hopkins AG's luscious Mexican chocolate coating, so don't forget those. 

Buy two Elderberry, Lemon Curd or Red Velvet Sugar and Scribe cupcakes and toast to your happiness. 

Select a special gift from our newest vendor, Ramona Bath and Body. Choose a made-from-scratch goat milk soap, lotion or relaxing bath salts. Or tell her "Bee Mine" with cute personal sized love bears or honey sticks from Mikolich Honey, and a favorite tea from Pangea or Agora Bean & Leaf.

Of course you can’t have Valentines’ Day without flowers! Maldonado Growers, Gilbert Quintos Farms, and JR Organics all have perfect blossoms for your beloved! Or choose a unique succulent bloom from John Gilruth to make your Valentine's eyes light up.

No sweetheart to share the holiday this year? Delight your 4-legged Valentine with goodies from Natural Pet. Your furry friend will always be true, but a brand new handmade collar and a bag of all natural treats couldn't hurt. Love the one you're with!

The evenings are indeed surrounding us earlier and there's a slightly brisk feeling in the air. But we've strung the lights at our Pacific Beach Tuesday Farmers' Market and are making the best of the shorter days! It's become quite the atmosphere for leisure, good spirits, and of course romance! If you're in the mood for a sweet treat while you're in the neighborhood, want a lovely place to stroll with your beloved after sunset on the beach, or need to pick up all the ingredients to make your own, homemade dessert delicacies, visit us this week for some sweet ideas!

Baked Apple Cookie Bars: Head home with a tub of yummy toasted granola from Safari Crunch, juicy honey crisp apples from Smit Orchards, and a few Pumpkin Praline cookies from The Cravory. Chop everything well and mix with butter, eggs, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves) and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. You can enjoy them warm, or freeze them to pack into school lunches for easy, "healthy" treats.

Slightly Sinful Saute: Persimmons are the select fruit of fall. Like orange hued tomatoes, their ripe pulp simply falls apart and melts in your mouth. For a quick, and slightly sinful dessert, peel and cut-up a few Fuyus (the shorter, stalkier variety) and sautee gently in butter and cinnamon, followed by a splash of Grand Marnier. Serve with a slice of pumpkin bread from Belen Bakery or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Take-me-away Take Away: If you simply want to enjoy dessert onsite with us while you stroll between the stalls, stop by Moncai Vegan for a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie, double chocolate brownie, or one of their mouthwatering lemon cakes. And its all vegan! If you're really in the mood to impress, choose a few dazzling tarts or a creme brulee from Lisko Imports and sit down and spoon feed your friends!
