Regier Farms Apricots
Regier Farms is one of a hand full of stone fruit farmers that have turned growing into an art form. Finding fruit of this quality in a super market is impossible, the luciousness of these fruits is the result of ripening on the tree, and the expertise and skill of passionate farmers.
On par with Regier, Santa Monica's farmers market is home to Tennerelli Orchards, and Lange's can be found in San Francisco. Lange's also grows Meyers lemons, available in winter. Remember to shop early, all the top chefs buyers will be there as soon as the market opens, you should be too ;) Don't refrigerate fruit unless you want to slow/stop the ripening process, allow to come to room temp before eating
