Christine Brown is the daughter of Anthony Brown, a cherimoya farmer from Rincon del Mar. This is their first week at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers' Market. The family hand pollinates each cherimoya bud which allows the fruit to grow to the size of grapefruits.

Ari Taymor is the chef and co-owner of Alma in downtown Los Angeles. He's shopping for brassicas this week at the market for a vegetarian entree currently on the menu at Alma. The dish features several types of broccoli and both wild and cultivated mushrooms.
