Market Report

Hosted by

David Karp is a pomologist with the University of California, Riverside and a freelance writer for the Los Angeles Times' Food section, where he writes the Market Watch column. He discusses the Chandler variety of strawberry, which was the dominant variety grown in California in the 1980's. The berry fell out of favor until recently, but now you can buy Chandler strawberries from Harry's Berries at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market.  Learn more about the history of the Chandler variety in this David's Market Watch column.

Matt Biancaniello is the bartender at the Library Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. He offers inspiration for several farmers market driven Easter Brunch cocktails including his "Lost in Laos" which features muddled kefir lime leaves, almond milk, Chartreuse, and whisky. He also suggests his twist on an Aperol Spritzer which is fresh blood orange juice, champagne and aperol.
