Fall Flavors at Costa Mesa Markets

Posted on September 17, 2012 | 9:43am

The OC Mart Mix Farmer’s Market at SoCo, Sprouts, Mother’s Market and the Farmer’s Market at the OC Fair & Event Center are great places to find a variety of spices, fruits and vegetables available to create the freshest, seasonal meals, small bites and desserts.
