Breakfast at Maya's Farms


With the organic craze sweeping the country, I'm sure that you've heard of, if not attended, a few farmer's markets. These farmer's markets sell food grown from local farms, but haven't you ever wondered where these so called "local" farms are located? Driving around my city, I've certainly not seen much farming that isn't citrus or cotton! However, after being told about Breakfast at Maya's Farms, I instantly recognized the name as a frequent Farmer's Market Vendor. Following the directions, I found that this beautiful farm was only 15 minutes away from my house. I've always been a city girl, but being on this farm made me wish (just for a few minutes before the allergies started) that I was a farm girl. 

Beyond these photos, I didn't really visit the farm, so let me dive into the food! I got a chicken salad sandwich (my new favorite sandwich) and it was amazing. They even presented it in a lovely picnic basket. 

I absolutely love this atmosphere for breakfast or lunch. It's relaxing and quiet... makes me feel like I've slipped away on a vacation somewhere!


Are you more comfortable in the city or in the country?

  1. In a perfect world I'll have 5 or so acres smack dab in the middle of a city xD But I guess if I had to choose, I prefer cities~ But when I retire, I know I'll want to be out in the country :)

  2. Gotta love farm fresh food!!! I'm definitely a city girl though, actually a suburban girl. Love me some big box stores and indoor malls :).

  3. I am for sure a city girl:) I grew up in a city and have totally learnt to tune out when needed to, but I am always so excited when I spot Farmer's Market (psst i have never been to a farm..):D

  9. Oh yum! I'm not a country girl but with the horse, I'm forced to be to a certain extent. And there's something to be said for the peace and quiet out there

  11. Looks delicious! I'm a big fan of farmers markets - especially in the summer when they get big and have more local farms coming out!

  18. I feel equally comfortable in a city and in the county...and I could live in both (but I live in the city).
    However, I love organic food so much that I don't mind driving to some village to buy goat cheese....or in some cakes even hiking to some remote place:)

  20. I hope the "organic craze" isn't just a craze. It's the way food originally was not too long ago. My mom made it a routine to go to the farmer's market every single weekend as I was growing up -- and now still!

    I grew up in the mountains with a forest and a cliff as my backyard, but now I live in the middle of Waikiki. It's alright I guess. No hikes, just a plastic beach and a million tourists. And drunks. But it's nice being able to walk outside and around the corner to get whatever I want! In the future, I would rather prefer to buy a home not near the city though, heh.
