I went to the farmer's market at Daley plaza and got to know about the Klug Orchards farm there~ It was such a pleasant surprise that I found all of the fruits that I love they were selling Organic choices as well! They had the best tasting Blueberries, Raspberries, Tomato, Melons, Donut peaches, apples, plums, beans, eggplant, etc~~ Every time I had a bite of their fruits/ veggies, they were the best tasting ones I have ever tried!! The tomatoes were so red and fresh! The Melons were so sweet and fruity! The raspberries I bought from them were the best tasting I had ever had! My friend who tagged along with me never liked raspberries until she tried those, she was so surprised to discover that "Real fresh organic raspberries were not sour at all!" They were actually very sweet and fruity! I was so happy with all my purchases at the Klug Orchards every time I went to the farmer's market that I got completely hooked last year.... [more]

I just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the produce I received and the friendly people I met at the farmers market at Federal Plaza.
