Strawberries are back at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market

Hosted by

Over 80% of our nation's strawberries are produced in California. Many farms spray synthetic pesticides on their fields. Not Smith Farms. Farmer McKay Smith relies on an arsenal of certified organic methods to keep pesky bugs and nematodes from eating into his yield.

Top Chef alum Phillip Frankland Lee likes the Camarosa berries from Smith Farms for their firmness and well-balanced flavor. He's using them in a Strawberries and Champagne dish at The Gadarene Swine and Scratch|Bar. Find Lee's recipe on the Good Food blog and tell us how you like it.
