While on my wedding shopping quest this weekend at the Glendale Galleria, I happened upon GiGi’s Farmers Market at American on Brand. This market has the usual stalls of fresh fruit and vegetables but they also bring in a collection of animals for kids to see and this particular Saturday they had the Buttermilk food truck. But I’m not writing this to discuss the delicious red velvet pancakes this food truck has to offer, I want to tell you about an amazing honey stand that sells at this market: Isabell’s Honey Farm.
This past summer I was complaining of allergies and heard that eating local honey is supposed to help desensitize you to the pollen in your neighborhood. My good friend Michelle saw an Isabell’s Honey Farm stall at this market and bought me a jar of the Sage Blossom. I was hooked. Every morning I make coffee and a double fiber english muffin with some peanut butter and honey on top. Let me tell you, there is no better way to start your morning. Not only does it taste so much richer and flavorful compared to the generic store brand but I did notice that it helped with my allergies. Go to the farmers market at Americana and Brand on Saturdays and pick up a jar. It costs $10 but worth every penny. Plus, who doesn’t like supporting local business? While you’re there pick up some fresh veggies, get a red velvet pancake from Buttermilk and enjoy the live music.
