Here’s a fabulous place for lunch and local farmers market if you’re looking for a day trip in Northern California. From Santa Cruz, take Highway 1 south. As you weave your way along you’ll run into the town of Moss Landing. I know I’ve mentioned this place before but wanted to give you a few more details. The first place you’ll want to stop is The Whole Enchilada Farmers Market which is on Highway 1. Everything is locally grown and the prices are very inexpensive. They also have some exotic fruits and vegetables which are hard to find. From there head over to a recent find of mine called Phil’s Fish Market. I guess most people know about this place (As I’ve noted by the looks of shock when tell people about it – “What? You’ve never been? Are you completely mad? I’ve been eating there for years!”) Anyway, once I found it, I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s super casual so dining alone is no problem. Be sure to get there early because it’s always packed. When it’s warm you can sit outside and enjoy an ocean view. After lunch the options are endless! Monterey! Carmel! Let me know if you go and if you have a favorite item that you order, I’d love to share that too.
The blue dot shows where the farmer’s market is. You can also see the call out for Phil’s. Hope you head over soon!
