The trick, lately, is finding the stand when March rolls around.

The Westchester farmers market, held Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on West 87th Street at Sepulveda Eastway, may be overshadowed by the concurrent Santa Monica market, but it has a small-town charm of its own. Steel drums resound and Pacific breezes cool the 1950s street-scape while jets from LAX roar overhead. The vendors are mostly familiar from other farmers markets; the local customers are pleased to have them.

When Saddleback Valley Plaza looked for a manager to launch a farmers market in El Toro last summer, Sandy Heil took up the challenge. For seven years she had helped her husband, Rick, with farmers markets in Corona del Mar and San Clemente, and her children were old enough so that she had the time.

Situated below a cliff a few blocks from the ocean, the Laguna Beach farmers market draws an affluent local clientele. Last Saturday, Janet Mason tended a small stand with sweet cantaloupes and honeydews, plus tender baby spinach, which she delivered from the Imperial Valley, where her family owns thousands of acres of farmland. Mason and her mother, Miriam Harthill, tend the stall themselves and donate the proceeds to the Kelomar Assistance League, a charity that helps children.

Here comes Halloween, bearing down upon us like a hearse with bad brakes, and your family is way behind in its fall rituals. No worries. Here are three farms, all within 90 minutes of Los Angeles, that are all tricked out for the season with corn mazes, hay rides, pumpkin patches and something called a “pumpkin cannon.” Go forth next weekend -- or during the week, if you're unbound by traditional school schedules -- and make hay while the...

With its seaside vista and swooping sea gulls, the Redondo Beach farmers market enjoys the most beautiful location of the hundred-plus markets in Southern California. Founded it 1983, it declined in the last decade as other markets opened in the area, but has stabilized recently and still offers a good selection of growers.

With its fine selection of growers, devoted customers and veteran manager, the Pasadena Saturday farmers market ranks in the top tier of markets. One of its special pleasures is the just-picked produce grown by Mike Taylor in his West Covina backyard, such as luscious Brown Turkey figs, aromatic Santa Rosa plums, purple Japanese eggplants and a bevy of heirloom tomatoes, including flavorful Brandywines, fuzzy yellow Peaches and Enchantment plum tomatoes.

Most California farmers are running themselves ragged, fretting about this or that from the crazy spring weather. Just this week it was announced that the California cherry crop would be 70% less than normal. But on the avocado front, everything's calm. Isn't that about what you'd expect?
